Northern Fronting and the North Lincolnshire Merger of the Reflexes of ME /u:/ and ME /o:/.
Britton, Derek
Language Sciences, v24 n3-4 p221-29 May-Jul 2002
Addresses the matter of Northern Fronting of eME /o/ in Lincolnshire, giving the medieval spelling evidence and the residual modern phonological evidence for the development in parts of the country. Considers the merger of ME /u/ and /o/ at /u/ in modern North Lincolnshire and argues that this situation is the result of lexical diffusion. (Author/VWL)
