What actually is the evidence for three phonemes /ɪƱ/, /iƱ/ and /εƱ/ in Old Cornish? The Vocabularium Cornicum has "clavus: leu pi obi" [Vocabularium Cornicum: 282], "leo: leu" [Vocabularium Cornicum: 560] and "color: liu" [Vocabularium Cornicum: 481]. This suggests two phonemes, /ɪƱ/ and /εƱ/. How is a third phoneme extrapolated?
