Ea, <heȝyw> o ow thybyans dres lemmel dew vleȝen cler passys:

<col> "belief"
<hegol> "believable"
<dyw> "day" (This could also be spelt <dew> or <du>.)
<heȝyw> "today" / "this day"

<dywgol> "belief day" / "holy day" / "superstition day"

<dygölya> "to go on holiday" is a probable case of over scope creep - as it 
is in English!

If <dywgol> is to be spelt with a <u>, should it be <dûgol> in KS, and 
should we have <hedhu>?

Oll an gwella,

Andrew J. Trim

An orthography for Revived Cornish should be based on Cornish, not on a 
reconstructivist conlang of the mid-1980s.

It was Andrew Trim, on 2008-11-12. :-)
