While mentioning <keus>, "cheese", why is <eu> necessary? Granted
that Breton has <keuz> and Welsh <caws> (apparently a very different
vowel from Breton), but Cornish is neither of those. Late Cornish has
<keaz>, and place-names <kez> (with circumflex over E): Carn Kez,
Sennen. This tells me that, in Cornish, the vowel is a long E, almost
"kaiz" in pronunciation.
