Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ...pucet, pucent, but puisions, puisiez, the result is that voiced forms are preferred. acutiare aguis, aguces, agucet, agucent, but agui sions, aguisiez. apetitiare apetis, apetices, apeticet, apeticent, but apetisions, apetisiez. atitiare atis, atices, aticet, aticent, but atisions, atisiez. minutiare menuis, menuces, menucet, but menui sions, menuisiez. platiare plais (cp. 162 II.), places, placent, but plaisions, plaisiez; here the substantive place platea decided for the forms with voiceless consonant.
