W-H also object on the grounds that words of the ace¯tum -type are all neuter, with the exceptions of rube¯ta and vale¯tu¯do¯. Note that vale¯tu¯do¯ does not necessarily presuppose a lost *vale¯ta beside vale¯re , vale¯sco¯, but may be analogical to other cases where a noun in -e¯tu¯do¯ is found beside a verb in -e¯re or -e¯scere .
