KS uses y for [I] everywhere except
in derivatives of monosyllables in <i>, e.g. gwir, gwiryoneth; tir,  
tiryow
and also where a final long i occurs in a stressed syllable despit,  
constrin.
initially, e.g. istyna, inclynya, in, indella, etc.
yn adverbial is distinguished from in 'in': yn tâ but in gwir.
