I believe this has been wrongly attributed to me by mistake. Far too well-formed and coherent for it to be one of my paragraphs!
I note the many examples of /d/ not mutating to /th/ after 'tus' with great sadness - I thought Dan had discovered a new mutation rule for a while. Still, never mind.
I don't suppose, Nicholas, that your much bigger and better corpus can provide any examples of mixed mutation of <ga>,<gi>,<ge> or <gy> after 'th, or can it?
