So, the SWF choice ought to be <besies>. I’ve put this in my dictionary.

Lhuyd's dotted-y represents a central vowel. If we write '*bysies', then
learners will pronounce this with a high front vowel.

Dhewgh whei lowena oll!

 

As I was looking through the SWF document there are a number of word forms
for which I would like to suggest alternatives:

 

-------------------------

SWF: besyes (pl.) of bys ~ bes finger 

 

The SWF plural would suggest a pronunciation **[“bEzj at s], but Lhuyd shows
bÿzîas [b@”zi:@s]. I believe the SWF should follow Lhuyd here and write
*bysies;
