Jon, *yn whir is unattested. The form is yn gwyr, in guir in the texts.

  Like Andrew, I too consider YN (preposition) and YN (adverbial
  particle) to be the same lexeme. For me 'yn whir' and 'yn ta' are
  simply prepositional phrases that function as adverbials. English
  also has prepositional phrases that function as adverbials; e.g., 'on
  time'.Jon

    ....

    I am not convinced that yn “in” is really any different from yn
    adverbial particle. I think they are the same word, so they
    should be spelt the same way. The adverbial use is some kind of
    an idiom using “in”. This mutates adjectives but not nouns, so yn
    gwir “in truth” is not mutated but yn ta “well” is.

    Regards,

    Andrew J. Trim
