“These words are a bit difficult. It appears we ought to have:

knÿw/knëw 'fleece', knÿvya/knëvya 'shear'”

 

In my SWF dictionary I intend to give:

knew [knɛʊ] m., knewyow [ˈknɛʊjɔʊ] pl., fleece.

knyvyas [ˈknɪvjəs], knevyas [ˈknɛvjəs] vbn., shear, clip.

 

“lÿw/lëw 'flood' pl lÿvyow/lëvyow”

 

I have:

liv [liːv], lyw [lɪʊ] m., livow [ˈlɪvɔʊ], livyow [ˈlɪvjɔʊ] pl., flood, deluge, inundation, spate, torrent.

 

“knofen, know 'nut'”

 

I have:

knowen [ˈknɔʊwən], knofen [ˈknɔfən] f., knowennow [knɔʊˈwɛnːɔʊ] pl., know [knɔʊ] col., nut, hazel-nut.

 

“cav 'gets', cafos/cawas vn.”

 

I have: 

kavos, cavos [ˈkævɤs], kawas, cawas [ˈkaʊwəs] vbn., get, have, find, obtain, fetch, acquire, procure, assume, contain, comprise, hold, take, adopt, affiliate, include, find out, discover, invent, retrieve, contrive, win, gain.

 

3rd sg. pres.-fut.: kyv, kev, kav ~ cav; 

 

For “colour” I have:

liw [lɪʊ] m., liwyow [ˈlɪʊjɔʊ] pl., colour, hue, tint, dye, paint, pigment, complexion, appearance, aspect, semblance, brightness (of sun).
