I'm aware of the phonetic qualities of these characters, but I felt that it
got the general feel of a yogh without it being too much of a hassle for me
to type it (I have ʒ as a hotkey). Sorry if it was confusing, if you were
to have a nifty Traditional Cornish Keyboard layout for me, I'd love to
hear about it. Otherwise, you'll notice me typing phonetic transcriptions
between [] and phonemic transcriptions between //.
Also, I just thought about my previous mail, and I noticed that I cannot
say that there was a phonemic difference between /g/ and /gw/ without
showing that *gr-/gl-* are always written without *w* or *u*. I'm not going
to analyze every example in the text, but if we consider *gras* 'grace', we
will notice that it is always written with *gr-*, and never with *gwr-/gur-*

All the best,
