On Larry Horn's /hawzwayvs/ example, it's worth remembering that
hussy , with /s/ and /z/, though I don't know anything about the distribution
of the difference, came from OE huswif . When and where the voicing
developed would be hard to determine. His example seems to be idiosyncratic,
since no one has responded to it, but it is suggestive of how change starts.
