The re-development of a contrast for some southern speakers in the sixteenth and seventeenth century was motivated by external factors such as literacy, prestige, dialect borrowing, and word frequency.

By adding alliterative data to the history of one specific sound change, I hope to have shown how philological work can serve theory and, in turn, how theory can revitalize philology.
