Sample text

61, 67. 1 Lengthening of consonants is indicated by doubling, for example, 〈dd〉. 1 Some early texts have 〈qu〉 for initial /kw/, for example, EpGl 661 qui¨a ‘womb’. 1 The feature of [voice] was phonologically contrastive for stops and affricates, whilst [length] was contrastive for all classes except approximants, but not necessarily contrastive for all members of each class. At one stage long consonants must have occurred both medially and finally, but by the period of the written texts they only occurred intervocalically over syllable boundaries.

Rather, whatever the dialect or date, there was at most a contrast between, on the one hand, /w/, and, on the other hand, /u/ or /o/ (not both). 2 Kuhn (1961) transcribes [e] and [Ñ] as [v] and [÷] respectively. In the present state of our knowledge the question is largely one of taste. 44 Syllables with secondary stress show a compromise between the behaviour of fully stressed and unstressed vowels. Long vowels are regularly reduced to short vowels and diphthongs are both lowered to ea (< io, eo) and reduced to a.

Examples of /x/ initially and finally are: hors, hros ‘horse’, seah ‘he saw’. Geminate /xx/ is rather infrequent, but examples include hlihhan ‘laugh’, hweohhol ‘wheel’. Naturally no minimal pairs to contrast /x/ and /xx/ can be established. , especially Bede(M), and persists in LVD. Examples include: Bede(M) † Strbaneshalch, CædH(M) 2 maecti, dryctin (2¥), 9 allmecti8, CædH(L) dryctin (2¥). The use of 〈c〉 alone to represent /x/ is much rarer: Bede(M) † Strbnes halc, cf. 10 waelcalo ‘Welsh ale’.
