After a panoramic view on the informations given from the East Indo-European for the endings in genitive *-osyo and -i, Lejeune attempts to fix a chronology for the two endings for each domain, and also the dynamics of the phenomena which led to the situation treated in the documentation. For Lepontic in particular he hypothesises an original situation with a competition between *-osyo and *-ōd, which has been complicated by -i, probably through "une influence tardive du gaulois" (77).
