Hear! Hear! And the same is true for 'March' and 'Tuesday'. These should be spelt in the revived language with the attested vowel:  mis Merth and de Merth. Anything else is speculative rather than authentic.

Thus we are building castles on the sand if we construct our orthography on such conjectural reconstruction of phonology. The Cornish attestations all have <e> or <ea>. It is better, therefore, to spell this word <cledh>.
