centum [ken′təm, sen′toom]
[L, HUNDRED: so named because the initial velar stop of L centum illustrates the typical development in this group from the IE palatal stop (i.e., IE k̑ → centum k, satem sh)]
designating or of the group of Indo-European languages, including Germanic, Italic, Hellenic, Celtic, Anatolian, and Tocharian, in which a complicated but systematic development of the Indo-European palatals and labiovelars sets these languages apart from those of the SATEM group
