Linguistic Change in French

By Rebecca Posner | Go to book overview
The ill graphy for [λ] ( > [j]) also caused confusion, so that from the seventeenth century we have evidence of anguille pronounced as [ɑ+̃ggiλ], for [ɑ+̃gil] and, from the nineteenth, of vaciller ( < VACILLARE), scintiller ( < SCINTILLARE) as [vasije], [sε+̃tije], though ville ( < VILLA) remains as [vil].
