The compilers of the SWF glossary have read and continue to read the texts.

Whatever the motive may have been, the Glossary gives an unattested and
borrowed word, in preference to a word in the earliest continuous text.
It looks rather as though the compilers hadn't read the texts.

The vocabulary listed in the SWF glossary is only a very small part of the
vocabulary used in Revived Cornish today. You have mentioned the tendency
for linguistic purism and attitudes and arguments along similar lines and
indeed the word you will rather hear in RC today is arbennek ~ arbednek
rather than specyal which is perceived as being English – and thus
I can assure you that specyal will be part of my SWF dictionary.
