Murray, Robert W.
Language, v76 n3 p617-54 Sep 2000
Approaches Middle English quantity changes as the consequence of the phonologization of a syllable cut prosody and provides new evidence for the relevance of syllable cut to the diachronic phonology of English. Evidence comes from partial reconstruction of Ihe phonological system of the early Middle English dialect presented in the "Ormulum," based solely on the orthographic and metrical evidence provided by its author.
