Meur ras dhys, Jon.

 

Why then does not the revived speech community go for these forms and adopt Heyl Fal(a) or Heyl Plym(m) ?

A gowetha -oll, 
 
I have followed this thread regarding Falmouth/Arwennak with interest. 
 
I have noted that 'aber' does not feature in traditional Cornish 
place-names.    The present-day 'Aberfala' and 'Aberplym' are of course 
neologisms, maybe needful ones. 
 
However how would one properly say 'mouth of the river Fal', and 'mouth of 
the River Plym' in modern Cornish?

The same can be said for Baile Átha Cliath and Duibhlinn vis à vis Dublin.

Or Falmoth.
