2.) ‹i› graph used inappropriately in prefixes and suffixes;
This point requires examples and explanation where and why the ‹i› graph is ‘used inappropriately’ and what inappropriate use of ‹i› constitutes. In such this point is closely related to the question of the rules of distribution of the ‹y› v. ‹i› graphs. Please elaborate!
Again, it is not clear by listing this one word what is meant by ‘aesthetics’ and which kind of aesthetic considerations come into play in the question of reviewing the SWF and standardising written Cornish. Please elaborate!

>> This is not correct. In the first place, KS doesn't use ‹ì› at all; it uses ‹y›. In the second, KS has a simple rule which is based on the SWF rules. In stressed monosyllables, ‹i› is used for [iː] and ‹y› is used for [ɪ] and ‹nn› is only used where words pre-occlude in the revived language. Thus KS writes ‹myn› and ‹jyn› and no one can get confused and say *mydn or *jydn for these words.
