Example text

The consistency of the spellings in EpGl, ErfGl, however, indicate that at that time, possibly only in Merc, [b] was still an allophone of /b/ rather than /f/. 58. 53. 10, closely related to CorpGl, has no such examples of 〈b〉. 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.

1 [ã] is a retranscription of [æ], which Stockwell and Barritt take from Trager & Smith (1951). 27 Hockett (1959), followed by Antonsen (1972), argues, at least for WMerc as represented by Ps(A), that the digraphs represented phonemes distinct from those represented by the corresponding single graphs, thus agreeing with the traditional position against Stockwell and Barritt. But, he argues, these phonemes were central vowels rather than diphthongs. Hence 〈io〉 = /÷/, 〈eo〉 = /v/, 〈ea〉 = /Œ/1 and similarly for the long members of each pair.

24. 23 no more adequately than does Daunt’s, and there is one further objection to be made. This is that, if [æ] and [ã] are allophones of the same phoneme, there should be no minimal pairs contrasting the two. But there are numerous such pairs, such as ærn ‘house’ as against earn ‘eagle’, stæl ‘place’ as against steal ‘stall’. For further criticisms see Kuhn and Quirk (1953, 1955), Hockett (1959). 1 [ã] is a retranscription of [æ], which Stockwell and Barritt take from Trager & Smith (1951). 27 Hockett (1959), followed by Antonsen (1972), argues, at least for WMerc as represented by Ps(A), that the digraphs represented phonemes distinct from those represented by the corresponding single graphs, thus agreeing with the traditional position against Stockwell and Barritt.
