I agree that there are three "classes of words" here.  I do not agree with the suggested pronunciations.
 
>The SWF writes the first class with <i> and the second class with <e> and the third class with <y>~<e>. This causes intolerable ambiguity so in KS we write the third class <ÿ>~<ë>.
 
It would be much simpler to write the third class with <y>.
