George gives glin [ɡliːn], because he treats the vowel as long.

Gendall gives pednglin [ˈpɛdnglin] pl. pedn dûlin which doesn't say  
much about length.

Jenner gives glîn [ɡliːn] pl. deulin, also treating it as long.

Lhuyd 63a does write glín, pedn glín -- with acute accents. How do we  
read this?
