Comments: The Av. accent paradigm is irregular (hój-dul, ha-bí); the plural form is probably an innovation (the -bí suffix tends to be stressed), thus paradigm A may be considered original. Cf. also Av. dial. hʷe, hʷej, Akhv. Tseg., Tl. χʷaj, Ratl. χʷaji, Bagv. Tlis. χʷaj.

    In plural most Andian languages reflect the stem *χʷor-, cf. Bagv. hʷara-χ:a, God. χʷar-di, Kar. χʷad-di ( < *χʷar-di).
