I really don't know. Melville Richards was the great authority, but he has been dead for many years. Ask Professor Paul Birt <pwbirt at uOttawa.ca>  He and I used to talk Cornish together in the 1960s. He was one of the editors of the Academi dictionary and would certainly know.

An excellent idea, but would it ever get past the Kesva crowd? And they would ignore its findings. They ignored Trond, they ignore Albert. They appear to do as they wish. Not that they know anything about Cornish or Celtic.
