‘half-length’ appears to be such a red rag, one could simply take it as ‘length’,

phonetic transcription of a monosyllabic word with a <span class=SpellE>w</span>-diphthong

<span class=SpellE>Lhuyd’s</span> spellings indicate that the nucleus was not
short; whether it is analysed as ‘long’ or ‘half-long’ or ‘three-quarter long’ makes
no difference. ‘Half-length’ in <span class=SpellE>Brythonic</span> linguistics
is, as you stated in CT, merely a variation of ‘long’. <o:p></o:p></span></font></p>
