Interesting that we know kelva as 'animal' but in PE21 we get kel(e)bē > (presumably) *kelwe 'dear, hind'; this echoes English and German, in which 'deer' and 'Tier' are cognates, but the latter means 'animal'.

D. Giraudeau's new PE17 Q wordlist quotes lunca, luqua "a heavy transport wain" as coming from earlier *lukma, although one would have expected that to produce Q *lungwa per Etym:374... Very vroom all the same.
