About Low Akalix  Low Akalix is the general term for the dialects of Akalix spoken after 300 NWJ. It contrasts with the older and more regularized form of the language,  Classical Akalix, which was still used as a common written language and as a Lingua Franca long after it was no longer a common spoken language for everyday matters.

There are several changes to the phonetics of Low Akalix from those of Classical Akalix. In intervocalic positions, /t/ and /d/ fricate and become [θ] and [ð]; while before a front vowel (i or e) /k/ and /g/ affricate and become [t͡ʃ] and [d͡ʒ]. All Classical Akalix instances of /p/ merged into /f/, coda /v/ merged into /b/, and all instances of /w/ merged to /v/. The vowels underwent an even more drastic change, and began to be differentiated by quality rather than length (note that this is the case for the Central and Eastern dialects, but in the Southern dialects, the distinction of length remained).
