I must have mentioned the late Cecil Roberts of Sennen Cove, who would
pronounce the LL of "Scilly' as though he were saying "still life".
Dick Gendall heard and noted him, too. Terry George, also of Sennen
Cove and the former lifeboat cox'n, pronounces "enys" (as in Enys
Dodnan) as "ain-ez" ("ai" as in "air").
