Does Proto-Germanic have -wan suffix like Russian -вать

Reply Tue 7 Jan, 2020 07:33 pm
Are these Old English and Russian verbs have the same suffix?

cnāwan (у)знавать > знать
sēowan (за)шивать > шить
wāwan (раз)вевать > веять
? hēawan ковать > киянка (кий)

I mean,

Is Old English -wan a suffix like Russian -вать


Could Old English -w- be a "euphonic insertion" ?

Russian have
noun подаяние "alms",


some Old Slavic texts have
подаание "alms" instead ("a" is uniotated "я")

I mean "a" and "a" never got along together.
