PCelt. *līwank- ‘stone, pillar’ < PIE. *leh₁- 'stone' / It. lava 'lava', Fr. dial. lave, Pr. lavo, lauvo 'flat stone' may be from Gaul. *lawā < *lh₁w-. Gallo-Lat. lausiae 'pebbles in a stone-quarry' (cf. Fr. lause, lauze 'pierre plate utilisée comme dalle') may be from an old s-stem *laws- < *lh₁us-, cf. also Fr. losange 'lozenge' and the toponym Lausanne, which may be from *laws-on- < *lh₁u-s-on-, or *lh₁us-h₃en-, with the possessive suffix *-h₃en-. If the etymology is correct, we should probably reconstruct an u-stem in PIE, with Nom. sg. *leh₁u-s, Gen. sg. *lh₁w-os. OIr. líe preserved the full-grade of the Nom. sg.”
