Sound-shifting in b remained medially and became f finally in Middle Franconian and in some Middle German dialects, as geven, to give, pret. It was shifted to b in Upper Franconian, whereas it appears as p rarely b in the oldest Upper German monuments, b came to be used generally in Alemanic in the ninth and in Bavarian in the eleventh century: Initial g became g in Franconian except North Middle Franconian where it remained.
It became k also written c before guttural vowels in Upper German, as OE. The writing of k, c medially disappeared in UG. From then onwards g only was used. Final g became a voiceless lenis generally written c, but also often g in High and Low Alemanic. The description, given above of the changes which the primitive HG. The real diffi- culty lies with the development of primitive HG.
From the Modern Franconian dialects it is clear that X remained medially and became f finally over an extensive area. In like manner, the modern dialects show that medial 5 must have remained in Franconian, and that final 5 became x written g in Bavarian, Swabian, Alsatian, and Franconian. In this case, it is not a question of voiced explosives having been shifted to voiceless explosives. The fluctuation in the orthography was merely due to the uncertainty existing in the writer's mind as to how he should represent the lenes b, g.
What are written b, d, g in OHG. These only differed from the voiceless explosives fortes in the intensity or force of articulation. Both sets of consonants were voiceless, just as they are now in most modern HG. In some modern HG. The rules for the pronunciation of the above sounds as prescribed for the language of the stage are ; b, d are voiced explosives initially, and medially between voiced sounds, but voiceless explosives before voiceless con- sonants, and finally, g is a voiced explosive initially.
It is also recommended medially between vowels, but most North Germans pronounce it as g tage in this position. Most North Germans, how- ever, pronounce the sound as x when final tax.
The rules as laid down for the pronunciation of the language of the stage are now generally recognized as the standard among the educated people of Middle and South Germany. The table below gives a summary of the HG. The shifted sounds are printed in italics. P t k Goth. The East Franconian consonants are usually taken as the normal in this book, because they mostly agree with those of Middle and New High German. Germ, x — g UG. Germ, xw — w prim. Causative verbs had originally suffix accentuation, and therefore also exhibit the change of consonants given above, as gi-nesan, to be saved: Before entering upon the history of the individual consonants, it will be well to treat here several points concerning the HG.
Whereas double consonants in NHG. When they became final, as fel, hide, gen. Then, after the analogy of the double consonants already existing, they became used in other words to indicate that a preceding vowel was short ; at first medially only and then at a later period also finally. This principle has been generalized in NHG. This statement is in- accurate. The double consonants in NHG. Briefly stated, the law is: His interchanged d and t go back to Germanic J. His rule for the use of initial vand f was: The two last examples prove that b and g were voiceless.
Traces of the law existed already in late OHG. The interchange between the lenes and fortes includes two independent processes, viz. It must be noted that in MHG. This is quite different from NHG. Intervocalic h was no longer a spirant in OHG. From our knowledge of the later history of the language, it is certain that the rule existed in pronunciation.
In the orthography, however, the medial intervocalic forms of the consonants occur very frequently finally by levelling out the medial forms, just as has almost uniformly been done in NHG. Final s has remained voiceless, but has become voiced between vowels, as lesen, Idsen, beside las, Idste. Initial w had disappeared before 1, r in prehistoric OHG. The w was often restored by analogy from forms where w was regular, as OHG.
West Germanic ww from wj. This change had taken place in the Swabian dialect by the end of the thirteenth century. SSLTota, , to prepare ; gelo infl. In passing from MHG. The final ao became 6 in OHG. The final o was weakened to e in late OHG. Final eo became ie in late OHG. When w was introduced by analogy or levelling into a final position, it has become b in NHG. Germanic, i consonant was written i rarely e, g in OHG. Initial Germanic j has, with few exceptions, remained through all periods of HG.
After consonants except r medial j became reduced to a mere vocahc glide, written e, i, in the oldest HG. A few such forms have remained in NHG. In other words, where we should expect rg in NHG. In the verba pura, forms with and without a de- veloped glide written j existed side by side in OHG. Final j became i in prehistoric HG. The regularly developed forms of the nom.
The double conso- nants have been introduced into the nom. When j came to stand finally in historic times it became a spirant, as NHG. Germanic 1 remained unchanged in HG. On vocalic 1 in NHG. Germanic r has generally remained in HG.

On the vocalic r in NHG. Final r disappeared in monosyllables after long vowels in late OHG. This r began to give way to the back or uvular r in the eighteenth century. In modern times it has spread extensively in towns and North Germany. Its origin in Germany was probably due to the imitation of French pronunciation. It arose in France about the middle of the seventeenth century and rapidly became common in the language of refined society. Germanic m has generally remained unchanged in HG. And mf became nf, as OHG. The final -n in the first pers. In other cases final -n when an element of inflexion has generally remained in NHG.
Forms like atem, eidam, gadem, odcm, oheim have their -m from the inflected forms ; thus regular forms were MHG. In Alemanic final -m became -n in monosyllables also, as heim, ruom became hein, ruon. Germanic n has generally remained unchanged in all periods of the HG. Forms in which final inflexional -n has disappeared in NHG.
Similarly in the NHG. Forms like entbehren MHG. The n in MHG. The Germanic guttural nasal q written n only occurred medially before g and k. It has remained before k in all periods of the HG. Intervocalic r g as in Engl, finger, not as in NHG. In final stressed syllables rjg became rjk in MHG. This final gk sound has been retained in NHG. On the other hand the intervocalic form i has been generalized in the recognized standard language and in the dialects of South and South Middle Germany.
The guttural r disappeared in an unstressed syllable when preceded by n in a stressed syllable in the course of the OHG. The r has disappeared in the secondary stressed syl- lable of NHG. The history of Germanic p in OHG. Germanic p only remained unshifted in the combination sp, as OHG. The forms which originally had single p have survived in NHG.
The interchange between p and b initially and medially disappeared in Upper German in the twelfth century except that p frequently occurred initially through- out the Middle Ages in Bavarian. Early loan-words with initial p were written p and b in MHG. Such words now have p in NHG. Romance words borrowed in late MHG. Further examples of b in OHG.
A small number of words, chiefly loan-words, which originally had initial b, were written p or b in MHG. These now have p, as panier MHG. By about the middle' of the fifteenth century, initial b had become a lenis in some East Middle German dialects. It was often written v initially, and generally medially between vowels, but always f finally. It was a labiodental fortis and always written f fif in all periods of the language.
The two f sounds fell together at an early period when final. The distinction between the two sounds was still preserved in MHG. Initially f and V are used in NHG. Examples of Germanic f in N H G. Several such words have got into the NHG. In the combinations tr, ht, ft, st Germanic t has remained in all periods of the HG. Apart from the t in the above combinations, Germanic t was shifted in prehistoric OHG. The affricata has remained in all periods of the HG.
In'ize, katze, nutze, setzen, sitzen, spitze -, OHG. The z,z, was simplified in OHG. In the fourteenth century the spirant began to be written sz, whence the NHG. In Latin characters it is written ss formerly also sz medially, and also finally when related inflected forms exist side by side, as hass, gen. Final z, became s and fell together with Germanic final s in the thirteenth century. It has fallen together with Germanic s and has therefore become voiced medially between voiced sounds in NHG.
It has become sch after r cp.

Germanic d remained in OHG. It became t in all positions in Upper German and East Franconian. But initial tw became zw in the fourteenth century, as OHG. Some of the words are of Latin or French origin, as dauem Lat. The initial d in such cases is due to association with the original forms of the words. In the other words the d is due to the influence of Middle or Low German. Jmndert, schande, sonder MHG. But nt occurs in hinten, hinter, beside hindern, munter, unten, unter, probably due to the influence of the Bavarian dialect.
In like manner we have NHG. Final d was shifted to t in all the HG. The t has remained in all periods of the language, as OHG. Final dt was often written for t in early NHG. This dt is still used in stadt. It is often written d after n. Traces of the development of an excrescent t began to occur in thirteenth-century MHG. A d has been developed between n— 1, n— r in quendel MHG. This d has generally remained initially and medially in the NHG. In a small number of words NHG. This is due to the influence of the Upper German dialects, in some of which Germanic J and d older d fell together at an early date in the fortis t.
Initial dw became tw in late OHG. Examples of the medial position are: Germanic spirant x from Indg. But the spirant remained in OHG. The aspirate h has remained initially before vowels in all periods of the HG. An inorganic h has been added by association with heissen in heischen OHG. Initial h disappeared before consonants 1, n, r, w in the ninth century'. Traces of the loss of h in this position occur so early as the second half of the eighth century, as hlut OE.
Intervocalic h generally remained in OHG. It became silent in all the dialects some time during the fourteenth century, although it has generally been retained in writing down to the present day. The h has sometimes disappeared in writing, as beil OHG. The retention of the h in the orthography in words to which it etymologically belonged served a useful purpose in late MHG.
After short vowels had been lengthened in open syllables, as in MHG. This is the origin of the h after long vowels in the great majority of the cases in which it occurs. It is very common in Luther's works, and chiefly through the influence of his writings it has become extensively used in the NHG. Inorganic h, as a sign of vowel-length, is now used finally after long vowels ; between a long vowel and a following liquid or nasal ; in verbs which were monosyllabic in MHG. The only excep- tions to this rule are draht MHG.
But the fact that it is written hs in OHG. When final, the spirant x written h in early OHG.
Initially, medially and finally after consonants 1, n, r , and when doubled, it remained except in High Alemanic where it became the affricata kx written ch, cch. Medially and finally after vowels single k was shifted to the double spirant XX written hh, ch, h in all the OHG. Germanic sk became sx written so, sk, rarely sg in late OHG. It is generally written sch in MHG. Northern Middle English sal for schal. In the final position it thus fell together with OHG. It has become g in NHG.

For the history of Germanic r g in HG. Further examples of single g in OHG. Several of the contracted forms have survived in NHG. Words like dogge, flagge, roggen early NHG. Here the gg does not go back to gj. Examples of final g are: Germanic s was in OHG. On the history of Germanic sk in HG. In these positions the s became voiced at an early period in Low German. In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries s became sh medially after r stnd initially before p, t written s , 1, m, n, w written sch.
Traces of this sound-change occur so early as the end of the thirteenth century, as barsch MHG. The s sound has also been restored in borse the same word as bursche , ferse, hirse. It has remained voiceless in all periods of the language, when doubled ; when preceded or followed by a voiceless consonant; and when final, as kiissen OHG, kussen , presse, missen; angst OHG.
When final s came to stand between voiced sounds it became voiced, Rsganse, hduser. By far the greater part of the word-forming elements; used in the parent language, were no longer felt as such in the oldest period of the German language, and still less in MHG. In this chapter we shall chiefly confine ourselves to those elements which play an important part in the modern language, such as prefixes and suffixes.
Nouns may be divided into simple, derivative, and compound. Examples of simple nouns are: Derivative nouns are formed in a great variety of ways: From adjectives, as breite, dicke,fulle, gute, hitze, hohe, kdlte, Idnge, menge, ndhe, richte, rote, schdrfe, schnclle, schwdche, schwere, stdrke, tiefe, weite. By means of various suffixes which are no longer felt as such, as achsely drmel, hagel, handel, nagel, sessel, vogel, ziigel ; regen, segen, wagen ; donner, flitter, lager ; wasser, winter; bruder, mutter, schwester, tochter, vater.

From verbs by means of a dental suffix, as andacht, ankunft, bucht, fahrt, flucht, geburt, kluft, kunst, last, macht, pflicht, saat, schlacht, schrift, tat, tracht, trift, zucht. From verbs with inseparable particles, as bedarj, befehl, beginn, begriff, behelf, beleg, bescheid, beschlag, besitz, bestand, bestich, bewets, bezug; empfang, entgelt erlass, ertrag, erwerb gebiss, gebrauch, gefecht, geflecht, gehalt, genuss, geruch, gesang, geschrei, gesicht, gewalt, geivtnn ; verband, verbleib, verbot, verdruss, verkauf, verlust, vermogen, versand, vertrag, verweis.
By means of various prefixes: Middle German dialect -chin, -chen , as btsschcn, kastchen, mddchen, mcinn- chen, sdhnchen, vogelchen. It was originally confined to French loan-words and then spread to native words, especially to nomina agentis ending in -er, whence the new suffix, MHG.
In abgdtterei, kinderei the -ei has been added to the plural. After the analogy of the nomina agentis a large number of nomina instrumenti have been formed from verbs in NHG. When used before other nouns, as Berliner tageblatt, MUnchener bier, they are old gen. Then after the analogy of such words, have been formed gegenfiissler, kUnstler, nachzugler, tischler, volksparteiler, zunftler bildner MHG.
Also used as an independent noun: Goth, hdidus, manner, way, OE. From abstract nouns formed from adjectives ending in OHG. In compound nouns formed by composition the second element is always a noun, but the first element may be a noun, adjective, verb, or a particle. When the first element of the compound was a noun, it was not so often inflected in the older period of the language as it is now.
After the analogy of compounds in which the first element is a masculine or neuter noun with the gen. Analogical formations of this kind do not occur in MHG. Then after the analogy of such nouns, there have been formed: Other examples of compound nouns in which the first element is inflected are: The second element of compounds is sometimes an old dat. Adjectives, like nouns, may be conveniently divided into three classes: Examples of simple adjectives are: Forms like golden OHG.
After the analogy of such nouns have been formed: Also used as an independent word, OHG. Goth, hafts, joined f Lat. Also preserved as an independent word in Goth, ga-leiks, OHG.
