Notes :The lack of vowel length in Kurukh is probably secondary (possibly due to the influence of nominal derivatives where the vowel was shortened before clusters). Inlaut -g-, -g̣- in Malto and -x- in Kurukh point to PNDR *-q- (PNDR *āq-nā > Kurukh ax-nā, PNDR pret. *āq-as > Kurukh akkh-as with the regular gemination *-q- > *-qq- > -kkh-). The preterite form in Malto - with gemination, no less - is unclear.
Additional forms :Also KUR axkā, akhkā knowledge, experience; MLT āg̣re to get accustomed to.
