In his Notennow Kernewek the late Ray Edwards discusses
alyon 'stranger, alien' and estren 'stranger, alien' and says correctly
that alyon occurs twice in BM. On the other hand, he says, that estren
is unattested. This is not strictly true since Lhuyd in his Preface
geffya e foto dho Estren pel-pou 'forgive a foreigner from a far
country his mistakes' AB: 222.
What Edwards does not mention is that the commonest word for
stranger which occurs twice in Tregear and now once in BK.
