<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
like it.

 

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.
