Editor for this issue: Steven Moran <stevelinguistlist.org>
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Shift from [g] to [x] in Dutch
Message 1: Shift from [g] to [x] in Dutch
From: Paul Evensen <paul.evensennoos.fr>
Subject: Shift from [g] to [x] in Dutch
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.
