 Umlaut - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term umlaut was originally coined and is principally used in connection with the study of the Germanic languages.
Umlaut should be clearly distinguished from other historical vowel phenomena such as the earlier Indo-European ablaut (vowel gradation), which is observable in the declension of Germanic strong verbs such as sing/sang/sung.
Umlaut is conspicuous when it occurs in one of such a pair of forms, but it should be remembered that many English words contain a vowel which has been mutated in this way, but which does not now have a parallel unmutated form; umlaut need not carry a grammatical function.

 Jonathon Delacour: Diacritical
I was absolutely delighted since I had never been happy using the umlaut/diaeresis or circumflex and I’ve always hated the wapuro style—rendering ö as ou and ü as uu, which is how one enters long vowels into a Japanese word processor (wapuro) or an input method editor on a computer with CJK support.

 W. Willker Codex Vaticanus 1209, B/03: The Umlauts
This is especially problematic when the imprint comes from an umlaut of column A (even) or column C (odd), because the imprint would appear on the "correct" side of the column.
Now, there are 7 umlauts which have a section number on the "right" side (and two umlauts where a correction is on the "right" side and 3 others where there is a section number very near).
If we assume that at least some of the umlauts have been added by a later scribe, it might be interesting to check, if the umlauts which are not reinforced (and are eventually earlier) show a different pattern than the rest.
