This statement is incorrect. 'Per(g)henogyon' is given in Nance's 1938  
dictionary, and has therefore been attested in the Revived Cornish  
corpus for at least the last 81 years.

The credo of 'Tota Cornicitas' has to embrace the Revived corpus; it  
cannot simply ignore the ways in which the language has changed and  
developed over the last few generations, at least not in the hands of  
skilled linguists like Mordon, Talek, Caradar and the like.

The aberrations of KK must, of course, be treated differently.
