Diosintablotta field name, recorded near Darłowo, contains a number of Pomeranian
features, among which the specific development of *ęT as inT without the Pre-Lechitic
mutation into *ǫT seems to be the most important. The mutation *eś > oś is unique, as
it should not have occurred in Pomeranian dialects. An atypical mutation of *e occurs
in the Lower Sorbian language.
