Isi artikelIn a series of publications, including volumes two and three of the Cambridge History of the English Language, Roger Lass has advanced the view that the short vowels spelled and were phonetically[i], [u] in Old and Middle English, and that their modern values [i] and [ ] developed after the middle of the seventeenth century. This position forces him to propose a simultaneous lowering and lengthening rule for the Middle English short high vowels which undergo Open Syllable Lengthening. We argue that there are no obstacles to reconstructing [i] [ ] for Old English, that positing a simultaneous lowering and lengthening of the short high vowels in Middle English is an unnecessarycontrivance, and that the lengthened [i] [ ] did not lower, but rather merged with the raised reflexes of ME [e:] and [o:].
