Eurasia Stub Culture Indo-European wax-1

PGm. *wahsa- n. ‘wax’ < proto-form. *uoḱs-o- (GK). "The Balto-Slavic forms are suggestive of a formation *uosk-o-. However, the neuter gender of the Germanic word could point to an s-stem nom. *uoḱ-os, gen. *uoḱ-s-os, in which metathesis could have affected the genitive case. The alternative is to reconstruct *uoḱ-sko- and assume dissimilar dissimilation in Germanic and Balto-Slavic" (GK)

Kroonen claims that forms in Baltic, Finno-Ugric, Indo-Iranian etc. were borrowed from Germanic. Others treat this item as common PIE inheritance.
