   h > Ø / #_ (dubious, but more than unlikely: "eils" and "Trigari" seem to show that a #h- might have been lost)
                  ## It isn't likely that internal -h- was dropped, and we have little to show for word-internal
                  ## loss of -h-; this likely means that "fehu" was preserved intact

   Chronologically ordered:
   
   Ø > ʔ / #_V (obligatory Germanic onset)
   
   ē₁ ē₂ > ē (merger of ē₂ into ē₁, indicative of East Germanic)
   ō[-nasal] > ɔ̄ / _# (lowering of non-nasal word-final ō)
   ǭ > ų̄ / _# (raising of nasal word-final ō to ū)
   Vn > V[+long +nasal] / _{x xʷ} (assimilation of -Vnx- to -Ṽ:x- common to all Germanic languages)
   
   e o > i u / [+stressed]
   i u > e o / _{r x xʷ w} (merger of eo/iu and further differentiation)
   e o i u > i u e o / *sporadic* (restoration of patterns, grammaticalisation etc.)
   e eu > i iu / _C(C)i, _(C)(C)j (Germanic regressive vowel harmony)
   iu ai au > io ei ou (diphthong reordering)
   
   V[+nasal] > [-nasal] (loss of phonemic nasalisation)
   
   ww jj > ggʷ ɟɟ (fortification of glide geminates, shared with Gothic and Norse)
   
   Cʷ > Cw (breaking up of labiovelars)
   
   i u > ī ū / _# (apparently lengthened before final vowel reduction)
   ī ū > i u / in particles, prepositions etc.

   ê ô > ē ā / _#
   ei ou ôi ôu > ē ō āi āu / _#
   j w > i u / C_# (revocalisation of reduced neuter syllables)

   uw > ū / _# (reduced *-uwą)
   ija ja a u i > ī i Ø u i / C_z#
   Ø > {i u} / C_z# (sporadic epenthetic vowel insertion in nominatives ending in unphonological codas)

   C[αVoice, +obstruent] > C[βVoice] / _C[βVoice, +obstruent] (voicing harmonisation of obstruents)
   x xʷ > h hʷ / #_V (debuccalisation of initial x)
   h > ʔ ~ Ø / *sporadic* (weakening of debuccalised x)
   Ø > ʔ / V_V (breaking up of vowel hiatuses, even in inflected words like «theus» — doesn't apply to diphthongs)
