With the plural "pyrch" maybe? Or then again you could copy W. and make porch the plural "swine" and use a derivative like porchen to mean a single piggy. "Here" we have from Latin porcellus > W. porchell, C. porghell, B. porc'hell From which are derived a diminutive in -ig (piglet) and a verb "to farrow" (give birth to piglets).

"Here" molton > W. mollt, C. mols, B. maout "wether sheep" I think the /t/ should remain, even in a polysyllable.

Looks OK

Why have you taken the adj. tri:ticeus "wheaten" rather than the noun tri:ticum? tri:ticeus > tri:ticij@ > tridygydd [tri'd@gID] tri:ticum > tridyg ['tridIg]
