A few more:


bras ‘plotting’; brâs ‘big’

bys ‘until’; bÿs ‘world; digit’

can ‘future indicative / imperative of cana’ (cf càn, cân in previous list)

cows ‘talk noun; imperative of côwsel’; côws ‘future indicative of côwsel’

es previous list gave it as present, it is of course imperfect

tal ‘future indicative / imperative of tylly’; tâl ‘forehead’

te ‘you’; tê ‘tea’
