Abstract:One of the many problems in Tocharian historical phonology is the development of labiovelars. Though progress has been made in recent years the exact history of the PIE labiovelars and sequences of palatal/velar plus *u/*w in Tocharian has still to be written. The interesting fact that in the Tocharian script two reflexes of the Proto-Tocharian labiovelar in Tocharian B, namely and , compared to only one in Tocharian A, i.e., , has further complicated the picture. In this study it is argued that the two reflexes of the Proto-Tocharian labiovelar in Tocharian B can be explained as the interference of different phonostyles.
