Hello Dan, thanks for the reply.
So, the instances of 'gw' or 'g (+ r) + rounded vowel' following 'th that change to 'wh' in the texts are mistakes, and the g should always change to a 'w', is that your view?
And g + (a, e, i or y) following 'th should always change to an 'h'? The only examples I could find in the texts of ('th h(a,e,i,y).....) were words that began with an 'h' anyway. I could well have got it wrong, though...any chance of an example or two?

Mixed mutation following ‹’th› works a little differently from mixed mutation in other cases:
‹Ga› Mixed: ‹Ha›‹’th›: ‹Ha›
‹Ge› Mixed: ‹He›‹’th›: ‹He›
‹Gi› Mixed: ‹Hi›‹’th›: ‹Hi›
‹Gy› Mixed: ‹Hy›‹’th›: ‹Hy›
‹Gl› Mixed: -‹’th›: -
‹Go› Mixed: ‹Who›‹’th›: ‹Wo›
‹Gr› Mixed: -‹’th›: -
‹Gro› Mixed: ‹Whro›
‹Gru› Mixed: ‹Whru›‹’th›: ‹Wru›
‹Gu› Mixed: ‹Whu›‹’th›: ‹Wu›
‹Gw› Mixed: ‹Wh›‹’th›: ‹W›
‹B›, ‹M›Mixed: ‹F›‹’th›: ‹V›
‹D›Mixed: ‹T›‹’th›: ‹T›

1. Type I mixed mutation of 'g' followed by 'a', 'e', 'i' or 'y' changes to an 'h', correct?
2. Do words beginning with 'gw' after 'th change to 'w' or 'wh'?
3. Do words beginning with 'g' followed by 'o', 'u', 'ro' or 'ru' after 'th change to 'w' or 'wh'?
4. What happens to words beginning with 'g' followed by 'a', 'e', 'i' or 'y' after 'th?
Thanks for reading, and apologies in advance for any ridiculous errors I might have made in asking this question...
