I think you’re right and I would very much like to drop *knowen, but it’s in the spec, so I will have to wait to be backed up on his decision. I’ll definitely suggest it. BTW doesn’t Lhuyd (AB 51c) have knẏfan?

"I thought that 'knowen' was an invention by KG that has no precedent. However, it appears that *cnowen, 'nut-tree' occurs in Lhuyd, 51c. Note, however, that this is 'nut-tree', not 'nut'. In which case *knowen, to translate as 'nut', would seem to be a KG invention and inadmissable as truly Cornish.
