For example: Latin ALBA -> aube /ob/ Latin ALMA -> âme /am/ (this one's strange, the circumflex would account for a written form *asma?) Germanic HELM (English helmet) -> heaume /om/ "Roumant" has the change /l/ -> /u/, written <ou> (yes, the vowel, not the semi-vowel) in all coda positions: QUALIS -> cuêou /'kE.u/ (hiatus or diphtongue, but <ou> is never <w>) APRILIS -> aprêou ALTUS -> âout Christophe.
