Dear Dr. Deutscher:
       After seeing the first round of responses to your query, I suggest that it may be useful to you to turn to The Syntactic Development of the Infinitive in Indo-European by Dorothy Disterheft, which was published in 1980 by Slavica Publishers. It emphasizes the material from Vedic, Avestan,  Old Irish, and Hittite. The book is a revision of her UCLA dissertation. The syntactic emphasis provides an important context for the interpretation of the morphological evidence of the early forms, which otherwise may be ambiguous, as one of my teachers, Cal Watkins, used to emphasize.
