Abstract
To sum up the result of this quantitative investigation, we could point out two
problems.
The first problem is that as we can see in chapter 2, lexical items change not
to a single reflex but often to a group of diverse reflexes. Language change often
include stages of variants of different quantity appearing gradually and unifying
into one final form. Such would be what we would like to describe in lexical
diffusion. The second problem is that as we can see in examples in chapter 2, the
orthography in many cases are hypercorrections imitating earlier forms, which
therefore is often removed from actual pronunciation. This is especially common in
chapter 3 where we can see that the orthography in the variants that have been
classified as being intermediate and counter to the rule is so detached from the
actual pronunciation that it is difficult to capture the main current of the change.
But such phenomena should not be regarded as being in conflict with the theory
of change by lexical diffusion. For, the theory of lexical diffusion was proposed to
mend the contradiction in the Neogrammarian thesis that change occurs abruptly
without exception. Data with such counterexamples are therefore more appropriate
for testing the theory.
