pronunciation of the original language

Post by johannes »

Would be interesting to try how the original language would have sounded.

Coming back to W the sound of W which is double U would be double like: UURALDA or the word Witch would be UUitch.
This I wanted to share as it came into mind last Sunday during bicycling on the flatlands of Walcheren. also with a double U

Looking back at the Standscript, i see there is no w listed. Though it spells Wralda with a w,which would have to be two "u"s (or "v"s) put together.

This is Ott's transliteration.
STAND. A Á À H Ô O U Û Ü E É I J Y Í B P T TH D F V R N NG M L G K S C X (W R A L D A .)
RUN. a. á. à. h. ô. o. u. û. ü. e. é. i. j. y. í. b. p. t. th. d. f. v. r. n. ng. m. l. g. k. s. c. x.

Would it be an idea to include the article How did the OLB vowels sound? in the new print of the OL book

personified grammar, c.1540
Reconstruction of how the 'Fryas' vowels may have sounded, based on related modern languages.
(Fryskednis blog-posts of 2018, April 17 to 28.)

the single V
the double V or W
A, Á, À
O, Ô and ʘ
U varieties
I, J, Y and Í
E and É
