I did not say that they were not different words, I said that they were
not different lexemes. In my examples below GALLOS (noun) and GALLOS
(verb) are different words but the same lexeme.Jon

  yn 'in' and adverbial yn are different words, because one causes
  mutation and the other doesn't.Your analogies are false.

    Just because a word has two or more syntactic functions does not

    differently from GALLOS (verb), and every other word that has
    more than one syntactic function in Cornish? Would you spell the
    English word BITE differently  in 'Bite an apple' from 'Let's go
    for a bite' because one is a verb and the other a noun?

    I'll be away from my computer over the weekend. Talk to you all
    again on Monday.

    Ol an gwella

      .... It seems to me that the preposition which does not
      mutate

      has developed into an adverbial particle which mutates.
