Middle Low German
- Stem vowel: ô²
- (originally) IPA(key): /wɔːlt/ or IPA(key): /wɔlt/
- 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.
