I have hunted on the internet for pronunciation of the ancient Cornish name for July (the reading starts with that) but have been unable to resolve. The stumbling is the ph - no "code" on charts I found. Pronounced like modern English "f"? Any suggestions of a website/link?
Thanks.

update:
I proof listened.
This is standard proof listening so it is up to you whether you want to change any of these. None of them change the meaning.
@ 1.25 Bearing upon his back the ripened sheaf* -I heard 'ripening'
@ 1.44-1.45 When juicy pears and berries of black dye –I heard ‘with’ black dye
@ 5:13 October brings the cold weather down -I heard 'Autumn' brings the cold weather down,
Let me know what you decide.
Nice reading!
-Amy

Hi Becky,
I would go with the F sound.
This thread is a resource for pronunciation
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=40285
If it's something other than F, doubt any ancient Cornish people will pipe up to correct you. But if anyone knows for sure, please reply.
Thanks, :wink:

I found something that hopefully is also of use for future projects with Old/Middle English or ancient Cornish. The Cornwall Council in the UK has put out a guide with common words in their ancient language with pronunciation!
https://www.cornwalls.co.uk/cornwall/language.htm
Glad to have found - felt impressed to try and get it right!
Thanks for your help Amy.
