The normal way of restoring lenited forms in 'gwra' is simply to
replace the 'g'. I hardly think that Nance can be accused of using an
unattested form when he did this.
Much more important than the finer points of whether something was
unattested or not is the fact that 'gwruthyl/gruthyl' has been used in
the Glossary to mean create. This is something I would never do in
everyday speech, (I would use 'formya' or 'creatya'), so it begs the
question which Cornish speakers are the compilers of the Glossary
