The word kal 'membrum virile' used by John Boson and respelt by George  
as *kalgh
is attested elsewhere:

Mentula…A man's privy member… C. & Ar[morican] Kal AB: 89a
Penis…C. Lost, kal AB: 116c
Veretrum…A man's privy member. C. Kal AB: 171c
KAL, membrum virile Pryce.

We thus have 5 occurrences all spelt <kal>.
What possible reason was there for the spelling *<kalgh>?
