Nevertheless it is agreed that we may write -y in polysyllables.

Unfortunately (for the SWF), we are not "permitted" to write -y in monosyllables. Why not? As far as I can see, it is only so that MAGA can automatically convert what they consider to be  SWF MC to SWF LC. Thus they can convert ‹hwi› and ‹whi› to ‹hwei› or ‹whei›.

I certainly prefer ‹why›, which is the most normal traditional form.
