style='font-size:12.0pt;font-family:Gentium;color:navy'>   The SWF gives <b><i><span
style='font-weight:bold;font-style:italic'>lewyow</span></i></b> for the plural
and the verbal nouns <b><i><span style='font-weight:bold;font-style:italic'>lewya</span></i></b>
and <b><i><span style='font-weight:bold;font-style:italic'>lewa</span></i></b>
(RLC), so it would make sense to assume that <b><i><span style='font-weight:
bold;font-style:italic'>lew</span></i></b> should be a permitted variant. According
to Schrijver this word can be grouped in the same category as <b><i><span
style='font-weight:bold;font-style:italic'>clew</span></i></b>, <b><i><span
style='font-weight:bold;font-style:italic'>clewes</span></i></b> and goes back

B <i><span style='font-style:italic'>lev</span></i>-, V <i><span

differs vis à vis the Cornish and Breton development by -<i><span
