Note: Walker condemns the pronunciation woond as a
It is certainly opposed to an
important principle of our language, namely, that the
Old English long sound written ou, and pronounced like
French ou or modern English oo, has regularly changed,
when accented, into the diphthongal sound usually
written with the same letters ou in modern English, as
in ground, hound, round, sound. The use of ou in Old
English to represent the sound of modern English oo was
borrowed from the French, and replaced the older and
Anglo-Saxon spelling with u. It makes no difference
whether the word was taken from the French or not,
provided it is old enough in English to have suffered
this change to what is now the common sound of ou; but
words taken from the French at a later time, or
influenced by French, may have the French sound.
