Abstract:This paper presents the first comprehensive linguistic study of all phonographically attested examples of mwo, mö, mey, mye, po, pye, and pey syllables in the Eastern Old Japanese (EOJ) dialects. I analyze each EOJ province separately, and in doing so I present evidence for a variety of phonemic mergers in specific provinces, including *m.>/mo/, *m.y>*m.>/mo/, *p.y>*p.>/po/, *m.y>/me/ and *p.y>/pe/. Importantly, I offer a solution to the puzzle presented by the data from the Suruga and T.t.mi provinces. I also show how this study is the first step towards a clear understanding of the shared innovations that will help to give us a more accurate picture of the taxonomy of the eastern linguistic area of eighth century Japan.
