But these two examples appear to attest both forms, /skynnya/ and /yskydnyow/, yet they are both translated 'descend'.
"me an felge adrus then pen | may teffo y ompynnen | ha skynnya avel mottis"
'I will cleave him across the head so that his brains emerge and fall like motes'
[Ton 1504: 1273-5]
"mehall yskydnyow eall splan hellowgh adam gans cletha dan hay wreage mes a baradice"
‘Michael, descend, bright angel, drive Adam with a sword and his wife out of paradise’ [spoken by the Father in Heaven]
[Jordan 1611: 964-66]

I am sorry, I didn't make myself clear. Yskynna means 'ascend', but skynnya, skydnya means 'descend'. That is what I meant and I apologise if my meaning wasn't apparent.
Yskynna 'ascend' is not used alongside skynnya 'descend'.

Nicholas is correct that /yskynna/can be translated as 'descend'. However /yskynna/also translates as 'ascend' or 'mount'.
