[Spellyans] <hedre>

These examples seem to confirm that the stress is on the second syllable.
Perhaps there is an indication here that the final e of hadre/hedre should be short.
The word means "as long as", "while".
The word commonly used for "as" / "while" is ha/hag.

Therefore, I think the SWF should use hadre with a short stressed e.
If sufficiently attested, hedre should also be allowed as either e or a would be schwa.

I believe that the UCR spelling should be used. There are examples of hadre in the texts,
but the word division makes them difficult to find:

yma pub ower ow cressya yn bysma ha drevon bew CW 1258-59
par dell osta arluth creif ha drevon omma yn byes CW 1424-25
in bysma heb falladowe ha drevone bewe CW 2108-9.
