You don't like ddwydd ddae? :) You could try for a more conservative phonology. You could introduce some kind of environmental factor that halts the mutational system before it develops so fully. You could invoke a Second Mutation that demutates (hardens, I guess) certain mutated sounds. You could invoke a sound shift certain sounds in certain environments change to something else. Padraic.
