Mutation of short *a to e (“Primary Umlaut”) is indicated orthographically. In Middle High German, the fronting of all back vowels in Umlaut position begins to be represented orthographically, the so-called “Secondary Umlaut”: Example 13    wâtlîh skôni mohti trunki hûsir loufit liuti guoti    wætlîch schœne möchte trünke hiuser löufet liute güete ‘beautiful’ ‘beautiful’ ‘would be able to’ ‘would drink’ ‘houses’ (MHG = [ü:]) ‘walks, runs’ ‘people’ ‘goodness’ With the reduction of unstressed morphological suffixes, these umlauted root vowels become an important secondary marker of morphological categories such as singular-plural in nouns (for example, hûshiuser ‘house-houses’).
