<u> is a common MC spelling for /ø/. Or could this be a case of secondary
i-mutation, like <budhy>?

In Dan's dictionary the word for 'to prepare' is spelt <pareusi>. There is
no warrant for this in the texts, since one would
expect <eu> to unround to <e> and there are no exx. of *paresy or anything
The forms are
parusy x 1
parusys x 3
parusugh x 4
omparusen x 1.
We can assume that the <u> here represents [y]. And this is corroborated
by parusse BM 3122, the comparative of parys 'prepared, ready'.
I think the word should be spelt <parusi>, <parusy>.
Preparya 'to prepare' is attested x 4 and preparar 'preparer' x 1.
