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..)
