Th Fronting

Briefly, until I get round to doing this properly:

"fronting" means the move from dental fricative (■,­) to labiodental fricative (f,v) -

think /■iNk/ -> fink (fiNk/
mother /m7­@/ -> muvver /m/v@/

BUT remember that initial ­ does not front in structural words, the this that, etc.
instead it lenites to zero, n, l, d-flap or the like. Might call this TH Weakening
