> Words like 'ȝurl' follow English orthographic practice; 'ȝurl' is afterall an English loanword. Long-tailed-z in alternation with <th> is due to the influence of Breton orthography on Cornish. Breton cognates are written with long-tailed-z where Cornish has <th>. This practice is post Norman Conquest. Just as English orthography was influenced by Norman French orthographic practice, so Cornish was influenced by Norman French and Breton orthographic practice. 

I'm sorry, Jon, but there is no distinction in the pen-strokes. The *letter* is the same *letter*. It is not two different letters with identical shapes. Stokes was right to use the same letter to transcribe both. 

I will put together something to make this clearer.
