Balto-Slavic phonological developments

Elsewhere I have proposed the following relative chronology of early sound changes (1989a: 42-47, 2005a: 115-118): (1) Neutralization of the opposition between palatovelars and labiovelars after *u and *s, yielding a palatovelar before *i and a plain velar elsewhere (cf. Steensland 1973: 34, Kortlandt 1979. This development belongs to the Proto-Indo-European period (stages 1.2 and 1.3 of my chronology).
