The Irilli Language agrees -with
the Southern Britidi a72d Cornifli,
in that they begin no word Primarily
■with Xy and thofe ■which begin -with it
in the Armoric and Northern
Weldi, 7iever vary their Initial.
VofTms a7id Menage have given
Fjcamples of the Changes of this

here added that the hiitijlH in the
Britifh, is ge7ieraUy F or S in the

Lingual Letters T. D-
Th. Dh. S. Z.
Firft Initial ofa7iy word in the Irifli,
and is allways the Second offuch as
begin with F or S. I choofe rather to
fuppofe fiich words better preferv'd by
the Northern Extraprovi7icial Bri-
tans, and fo ret am' d in the Irifh,
than by us ; notwithfta7idi72g that we
agi-ce herein with the Greeks, and
they with the Romans. Savail (for
Example) which ftg7iifies in the Iri/h,
Like, Equal, ^c. is fometimes ha-
vail j as, a havail. His Peer or E-
quaJ. So that we fee they agree ;;/
the Fir^ ( or Primary ) Initial:, with
the Latin j and in the Second, with
the Greek '0^yA« . and our f W.
Hivahand at the fame fme that the
later words are deriv'd from the
former. So Sean, Old ; Do heanoili,
thy Old Age; Sarruyia , Injury,
Opprejfion; Do harruidh fe, He
Wro7igd or hijur'd ; Faga, to leave ;
Do hag fe, He left. Fait;i;ios, Fear,
Hazard; Gan haitAiios, Safely. Feal,
Treachery ; Ni healfa le ort ; He
will 7iot betray thee, &c.
HI chang'd i}ito L.
Engl. Hlynn, ^i.w«, ie. A Lake
infome parts of the North.
t Engl. Hlip, A Leap; Hlaford ,

Thti Hi of the O/^EngliflKiW
Germans, was probably the fa7ne
with our VVelfh Lh | or LI ] as their
Hr. could be 710 other tha7t our Rh.
Such words as begin with H in the
Wclfli, Cornifli and Armoric, ne-
ver cha7ige their Initial.
