Message 1: Shift from [g] to [x] in Dutch

Date: 12-Nov-2004

Subject: Shift from [g] to [x] in Dutch


Hello,
I'm very interested in finding information about the development in Dutch
of [x], especially in graphic /-ge-/ and /-gi-/ combinations. I'm
especially interested in finding out whether there was a shift from an
original (Germanic?) [g] pronunciation and whether the shift was caused by
external or foreign influences. Bibliographies or research references are
very, very welcome.
Thank you.
