PIE. *gʷelbh-u- (IEW: 473). "Beside the feminine word for 'womb', there is the zero grade neuter Av. gərəbuš- 'young animal'; therefore, for δελφύς an s- stem may be considered as well (Schwyzer: 516). δολφός corresponds to Skt. gárbha-, Av. garəβa- [m.] 'womb'. The Greek form with a labiovelar (* gʷelbh-u-, * gʷolbh-o-) does not accord well with the * k- in Gm. forms like OHG kilbur [n.] 'ewe lamb', OHG kalb 'calf', etc., which therefore have to remain apart, unless we assume dissimilation gʷ > g ."
