In Desky Kernowek we have the examples
We had given no example of -g + h- at a morpheme boundary. However, we did have
tekhe ‘beautify’ from teg ‘beautiful’
This is interesting, because we write ragtho not ractho/raktho; both aragtha and ractha are attested.
For a compound like rag + hanow *raghanow would be incorrect. rag’hanow and rakhanow would be permitted spellings depending on pronunciation.
(As to final -k vs final c, the choice would have had to be tekhe/raktho or tec’he/ractho
I was inconsistent with current practice in my comment about
In Desky Kernowek we give
So we ought, in fact, to write arnowethhe.
