Theoretically medial [gg], when palatalized and assibilated, will not contrast with /u/ and therefore no geminate /du/ need be postulated, see Kuhn (1970: 48, 49). Nevertheless, it seems sensible to retain the geminate phoneme for the sake of clarity and I do so here, without distributional justification. Examples of /du/ are: se78an ‘say’, li78an ‘lie’. sg. 14 8eby878ean ‘buy’, hry87 ‘back’ (2¥). The name-element E78- often shows simplification in BH, BH(N) preferring E8-, BH(I) preferring E7-, but BH(M) prefers the full form.

Firstly, when the diphthongs ei and ai do appear, then their subsequent history is different from that of monophthongal /e, a/, since they merge together, see PDE way (< OE weg), day. Secondly, once diphthongization takes place contrastive length is lost, as can be seen by Orm’s failure to distinguish length in these cases, see Luick (1914–40: §§372A2, 373A1). Jordan’s suggestion (1974: §87R1) that daèè represented [daiq] cannot be accepted.
