In a phonemic spelling they would be written in the same way.
Incidentally George himself pronounces the Cornish word for 'lord'with
a short unstressed [U] and a voiceless final segment, i.e. exactly as
does KS with its <arlùth>. I suspect that mostspeakers (of whatever
school) have a voiceless th in this word.Moreover Lhuyd spells the
spoken Cornish form as <arleth> with avoiceless final.Why then does
the SWFwrite <arludh> with a voiced final?
