If <u> represented /ø/ we might expect occasional spellings as
There appears to be a rule in words with /oe/ in the base form and <y>
by vocalic harmony before -y in the next syllable:
eus ~ usy
*beuth ~ budhy
breus ~ brusy
anfeus ~ anfusy
*pareus ~ parusy
*euth ~ uthyk [uth is attested].
At all events it seems that forms like beudhi, anfeusi, pareusi should
not be included in the SWF.
