So he does, under Tenebrosus. Thank you for that, Jon. Moreover, Nance
in his 1938 dictionary ascribes comolek to Lhuyd.
I should have checked that.
Given that comolek means 'dark', not 'cloudy', it is quite likely that
the word comol(en) 'cloud' was no longer known in Cornish in Lhuyd's
Lhuyd's other words for 'cloud' are niul 'a little white cloud' and
gorwer 'cloud, thick mist'.
