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. Note also Beo 957, 980 E7-. 1 In these dialects, when 7, 8 or s7 stand before a back vowel, stressed or unstressed, a vowel is inserted between the consonant and the back vowel. 59–70 for full details and discussion, but it is likely that at least in some cases the vowel was diacritical and was inserted in order to indicate the palatal nature of the preceding consonant.

Long vowels are regularly reduced to short vowels and diphthongs are both lowered to ea (< io, eo) and reduced to a. Examples of the reduction of diphthongs are: s7iptearo, s7iptaran ‘pitch’ alongside teoru ‘tar’. 43. 1 Therefore in this work originally long vowels in secondary- or weak-stressed syllables will not be marked for length.
