> "crown"  is a good example of the problem. The SWF dictionary gives curun;kurun giving no indication that the two [u]s are different. Dick has kîran giving a much better pronunciation guide. I don’t know what KS does.

cùrun [ˈkʊɾən] or more narrowly [ˈkʊɾᵻn] 

Lhuyd writes ‹tan ᵹẏryn› [tən ˈɡərɪn]

I would read ‹kîran› as [ˈkiːrən] and would treat this as a (?rather) late metathesized form /ˈkʊɾᵻn/ > /ˈkᵻɾʊn/. The texts give mostly ‹curun› amd ‹curyn› I believe.
