[Spellyans] telling the time

Perhaps "two o'clock" should be "on the bell of two" = war glogh dew, or "two on a bell" = dew war glogh. This second option would be pronounced as though dew ar glogh. I'm sorry, I have no evidence for this but it would explain the mutation.


Regards,

Why not a'n clogh? Clogh is masculine, it seems.
