How shall we spell this? Welsh has unassimilated <jazz> and 
assimilated <jas> with <jasaidd> 'jazzy'.

In Cornish, unassimilated <jazz> is of course possible, but would be 
properly italicized in print as a loanword. As an assimilated word =, 
<jaz> and <jas> would be pronuounced identically, rhyming with <tas> 
'father'. An adjective <jazek> or <jasek> might be derived for 
'jazzy'.
