No problem, Jon. Re Varia! Haven’t we all been there, seen it, done it?

Sorry! Lhuyd (1707: 48b) gives "lêụ" for 'rudder'. I withdraw my earlier remark.

I can only find <liụ> in Lhuyd for colour. The only spelling I have with <ew> is in CW. There are spellings from OC with <iu>, MC with <yw>, <yv> which are much more frequent. Why base the spelling of this word on a single attestation of <ew> rather than a more richly attested digraph <iu> ~ <yw>?

“Lhuyd (1707: 48b) gives "lêụ" for 'colour'. I think we should write this word 'lew'.
