>From the evidence relating to cledh, would it suggest that the front
rounded vowel sound in Cornish was in retreat in the early 15th century.

If that were so, would it not be fair to say that the SWF etymological
spelling is helpful to *pronunciation* only if you wish to target a
projected mediaeval pronunciation and as such more relevant to old Cornish
than the period the revival professes to be interested in?
