Lhuyd (1707: 33c,241c) uses a dotted-y in kẏligi. This represents schwa in a weak syllable. If we assume a singular form, kylik/colik, then the stress would shift to the first syllable and we need to know the strong form of the vowel in the first syllable. If this word comes form Latin cochylia, then it would be reasonable, perhaps, to assume the vowel <o>.

In a normalized orthography such as the SWF, would you say it’s fair to give kylik, kyligi (pl.), or would you go for something more “etymological” such as colik, coligy?

Yes, AB: 33c. My error.

Doesn’t Lhuyd give kẏligi?
