One of the words cited by the online dictionary of the Akademi Kernewek is yeunadow s.v. ‘yearning’. The vowel of the first syllable is perplexing, since one might expect <ew> rather <eu>. 
Moreover the dictionary seems unaware there is a common form without the initial y-

gothvos ynweth decernya omma ynter drok ha da yv ov ewnadow pup vr ‘to be able also to distinguish between evil and good is my desire always’ BM 28-30
cres i’n du pur a yl gul e unadow ‘believe in the pure god who can do his desire’ BK 573-34

Ow unadow, a garadow, ew mos genas ‘My desire, O beloved, is to go with you’ BK2947-49
vnadaw ‘command, good word’ Bodewryd.

Ewnadow, unadow does not seem to be cited in the dictionary of the Akademi.
