Have been away for quite a while but in case I rarely if ever contribute to your interesting debates. However with regard to <whose> etc. i learned that to translate for example "James whose brother played for Cornwall......" one would write "Jammes a neb an broder rig gwari rag Kernow ......" Disregarding my modern Cornish spelling which is now defunct, can Nicholas or anyone give an opinion please. most grateful. Mina Dresser

That's interesting. Do you parse <grasse> as the plural of 'gras'? If so, would
t correspond to UCR 'grassow'?

We do, however, find the following:
grasse the meryasek wek 'thanks to dear Meriasek' BM 749
grasse the crist yth oys sav 'thanks to Christ, you are healed' BM 1854
grasse the crist a galloys 'thanks to Christ of power' BM 4244
So grassa dhis/dhywgh is not unwarranted.
