I'm sorry I don't follow you here, Michael. What is it that you don't believe is an across-the-board phenomenon? Is it that traditional Cornish <i>~<y>~<e> might represent dialectal variability? Or is it that traditional Cornish <i>~<y>~<e> might represent allophonic variation? Or both of these propositions? Or neither?
