Middle Low German[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • 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.
