This is the earliest and most familiar category of prosthesis and affects words beginning with [s] plus a consonant. Its origins and early development are first traced, exploring its geographical distribution, actualization, and possible causation. The varied medieval and modern outcomes across Romance are then systematically examined in a comparative‐historical perspective.

Keywords:   I‐prosthesis evolution, I‐prosthesis origins, I‐prosthesis and geographical incidence, I‐prosthesis causation, I‐prosthesis actualization, I‐prosthesis and Tuscan, I‐prosthesis and Walloon
