      There is no ð in Gothic. At least, there is no special sign for it.
      The question of _grammatischer Wechsel_ (Verner's Law) is somewhat
      disputed. At any rate, Gothic shows the (most probably) voiceless
      interdental spirant þ. Grimm would refer to the Proto-Germanic form.


      P.S. Could you give the reference, please ? That is, which of the
      Brüder Grimm and where it is said, so I can check it ? Thanks !
