Middle Low German[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • Stem vowel: ô²
    • (originally) IPA(key): /ɔːlt/ or IPA(key): /ɔlt/
    • While the combination /ld/ originally lengthened the vowel in Old Saxon, in several Middle Low German dialects it was treated like a geminate, or had actually become /lː/, and in turn shortened long vowels occurring before it. Further, the vowel was shortened before /lt/ from final obstruent devoicing. Dialects then often begun to apply the more common vowel length across all forms.

Etymology[edit]

From Old Saxon āld, from Proto-Germanic *aldaz. Cognate with English old, Dutch oud, German alt, West Frisian âld.

Adjective[edit]

ôlt or olt ‎(comparative ôlder or ö̂lder or êlder, superlative ôldest or ö̂ldest or êldest)

  1. old
