If one accepts the principle of tota Cornicitas, most of the spellings  
in the SWF (without authentic graphs) are supported by the texts. Look  
at the following unfinished analysis:

Yn termyn eus passyes yth esa trigys yn Synt Leven den ha benyn yn  
tyller kriys Chi an Hordh.
Han hwel a godhas skant; hag yn-medh an den dhe’n wreg,
“My a vynn mos dhe hwilas hwel dhe wul, ha hwi a yll dendil agas  
bewnans omma."
Kummyas teg ev a gemereas ha pell dhe’n est ev a dravalyas,
ha wor’tiwedh ev a wrug dos dhe ji tiek ha a wrug hwilas ena hwel dhe  
wul.

I dislike the SWF (without authentic graphs) but at least it is not  
Kernowek Kemmyn with all
its mistaken underlying phonology.

In the SWF the most inauthentic spellings are items like vynn and  
kummyas with geminate consonant.
In SWF traditional we can substitute vydn and cubmyas, which are  
attested.
