[Spellyans] hour

In addition:

 

I have a note saying 'ear' CW 134,

Plus - 'er' MC 37; 'er-na' (for 'that hour') MC 170 & 200.

And - 'ur' OM 101, 307 & 576; 'ur-na' MC 54; 'ur-ma' & 'urow' (pl.) Lhuyd

Lhuyd I believe also has 'owr' and 'ower'.

 

Don't now how this helps, but someone may see a pattern. Seems a very
variably spellt word, with maybe some distinction merited for the duration
of an hour, as opposed to 'the hour'. This might best be done via a suffix
as per Breton 'eur' & 'eurveth'.

 

Regards
