In Luwian, as in Hittite, the *CóC-stem formation is the counterpart of PIE. perfect *C1e-C1óC2-. In Proto-Anatolian, the PIE. perfect shows very few traces of reduplication; principally, it shows only the o-ablaut. Structurally, the Hittite -hi verbs are best compared to the PIE. perfect *u̯oid- ‘to know’, which was unreduplicated. While this situation has been examined in depth in the case of Hittite, a study of this kind focusing pecifically on Luwian is still lacking. This article aims to explore this issue for Cuneiform and Hieroglyphic Luwian.
