Example text

4 But note that in nWS the umlaut of ba was b, for example, hbran ‘hear’ as against EWS hceran. On the other hand, EWS also has hcran, and LWS hyran. 23 To the above theoretical arguments there may be added the following arguments from lOE and ME. Firstly, ea, when lengthened, develops as ba. 18 Orthography and phonology The balance of probability, but no more, is that this makes it more likely that ea was a short partner of ba rather than a monophthong. Secondly, qo and bo develop in parallel in eME, as /ø/ and /øp/, contrasting with the eME developmment of q and b as /e/ and /ep/, see Luick (1914: §§357, 361, 378).

For a listing of forms and discussion, see Chadwick (1899: 232–40), also Wynn (1956: §109), Pheifer (1974: §69). 3 In wbobud 〈b〉 may represent [b], see Campbell (1959: §461n3), and nwfre, nwbre is of uncertain etymology. Other forms are probably Latinisms, see Brunner (1965: §191A2), Cosijn (1888a: §130), which leaves only frbbranne as reliable. Note, however, poetical (GenA, Exo) tiber ‘sacrifice’. 1 it contrasted only in voicing with /t/ and is hence transcribed as /d/. Examples of /d/ are: dæ8 ‘day’, rcdan ‘ride’, tcd ‘time’.

Maffian ‘become shameless’, wlaffian ‘stammer’, woffian ‘blaspheme’, of uncertain etymology, may be metaphorically connected to the cases of onomatopoeia, as may lyffettan ‘flatter’, which would otherwise presuppose *lufjatjan. For all these types see Hogg (1982a). Other forms with 〈ff〉 do not represent /ff/, such as EpGl maffa ‘caul’, a corruption of Lat mappa, cf. 〈pt〉 for /ft/. 53. No doubt such a change in relations gradually evolved during the period. 59 The dental fricative was normally represented by 〈/〉 or 〈¨〉.
