Usage notes[edit]

This adverb is found almost exclusively in its soft-mutated form draw today except in literary contexts where forms such as aspirate-mutated thraw may be encountered. In essence, draw has become the unmutatable, standard form of the word.

Mutation[edit]

Welsh mutation
radical soft nasal aspirate
traw draw nhraw thraw
Note: Some of these forms may be hypothetical. Not every
possible mutated form of every word actually occurs.
