walker condemns the pronunciation woond as a capricious novelty. It is certainly opposed to an important principle of our language, namely, that the old english long sound written ou, and pronounced like french ou or modern english oo, has regularly changed, when accented, into the diphthongal sound usually written with the same letters ou in modern english, as in ground, hound, round, sound. The use of ou in old english to represent the sound of modern english oo was borrowed from the french, and replaced the older and Anglo-saxon spelling with u. It makes no difference whether the word was taken from the french or not, provided it is old enough in english to have suffered this change to what is now the common sound of ou; but words taken from the french at a later time, or influenced by french, may have the french sound.

DNA

... winding the DNA onto histones protects it from the nuclease, so the DNA is cut only in regions between the histones. If the same length of DNA is wound around each histone and every DNA segment between histones gets cut, the fragments after inter-histone degradation would be roughly the same size. ...
