Only Indo-European loans are possible in Proto-Uralic and these are: aja-(ma) 'to drive', pelga-(ma) 'to be afraid of, soon 'sinew', soud-(ma) 'to row', too-(ma) 'to bring', vesi 'water' (the loan relation of these stems is not certain for phonetic or semantic reasons).

Hajdu also shares the view that Proto-Uralic had already had two possibilities of the formation of the 3P for the verbs: with and without a verbal inflection.
2001, The So-Called Uralic Original Home (Urheimat) and the So-Called Proto-Uralic.
1) At the same time all those who have studied this question agree that the object was not always marked, hence Proto-Uralic must have possessed the category of unmarked object.
