Notes: The pure root was evidently *ou-, with different so-called determinatives like *-g-, *-k- and other, which served to fill the Proto-Indo-European vocabulary. At all, there can be only about 600-700 pure Indo-European roots found, but practically each of them has its different stems with determinatives added to the root.
