“It is <ùnderstondya> in KS and so should be <understondya> with ambiguous
vowel. If you write <cammùnderstondya> you imply <cabmùnderstondya>; is this
your intent?”


There is no implication in the SWF that <mm> necessitates the Late Cornish
variant <bm>. <Mm>, <nn>, <ll> and <rr> retain the double spelling when the
syllable in question carries secondary stress.
