A gowetha -oll,

I have followed this thread regarding Falmouth/Arwennak with interest.

I have noted that 'aber' does not feature in traditional Cornish
place-names.    The present-day 'Aberfala' and 'Aberplym' are of course
neologisms, maybe needful ones.

However how would one properly say 'mouth of the river Fal', and 'mouth of
the River Plym' in modern Cornish?

- an ken Ken

The same can be said for Baile Átha Cliath and Duibhlinn vis à vis Dublin.

Or Falmoth.
