Michael, and friends,

Recent discussion on pronunciation on initial gw- prompt me to cite an instance of traditional spelling in the Passion Poem.

Stanza 4, line 1 has:-

An dus vas a ƺeserya ƺeƺe gulas nef o kyllys

I am reading   gulas nef   as signifying the Kingdom of Heaven in English translation.   This spelling seems to suggest that the pronunciation might have been something like 'goolass' with a short oo sound.   (Sorry I cannot do the phonetics - and not sure about the s..)
