Nance 1938 has 'facya', and Williams 2006 gives 'facya, dyfacya, dyfacys',
which all seem acceptable to me.

The spelling "difasya", wherever it comes from, would be pronounced
[d?'fæzj?] or [d?'fæ??] according to our rules. We would not spell the first
segment "di" either, as that would violate the principled distribution of
"i" and "y" that we use. 

For "de" versus "dy" I believe the latter is the typical form in Cornish,
though an exhaustive listing of this type of word would be interesting if
someone would like to compile one.
