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

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