Yes. In Late Cornish the forms without pre-occlusion are much more
than the pre-occluding form. I have found only one example of in badn.
lemyn me es goer in badn CW 2202
Whereas in ban, a man, a mann are normal in Late Cornish.
Rowe writes mann 'up' but also keber < kebmer and vednyaz < wovydnas.
That is to say he pre-occludes in some words but never in in ban/in man.
Neil in his dictionary writes 'up' as aman passim.
That is why I should prefer to write in bàn, in màn and in badn.
