Commentary

Lejeune claims that the significance of the fact that Italic, in contrast to most of the other Western Indo-European languages, keeps the distinction between final -m/-n should be reconsidered in light of the ending in -n attested in the Italic (Venetic) area and of the ending in -m in the Celtic areas (Lepontic, Celtiberian, and, in some cases, also Gaulish).
