  5. Some simple Welsh phrases


Some simple Welsh phrases

While we're waiting for a Welsh course here are some simple phrases:-

Bore da = Good Morning (lit Morning Good - Welsh has the adjective after the noun)

Prynhawn da = Good Afternoon

Nos da = Good night

Hwyl = Bye

John dw i = I am John

Martha dw i = I am Martha

I hope you'll be including a few silly/funny sentences, eg "There's a dragon on the roof". "He lives in an apple" is one example I've come across in the French Duolingo course.


That's a great idea for a new thread, diolch. We have a few lined up such as ' dw i'm hoffi coffi' - I like coffee, it's amusing because the of the hoffi coffi rhyme. Yes, various sentences using dragons should be essential, also coming from and going to 'Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch' would be fun, although maybe it would break the TTS :-)


Beth ydy'r Cymraeg am "I can't wait for the Welsh course"? Diolch & nos da! :))


dw i'n methu aros = I can't wait, lit = I'm failing to wait am y cwrs Cymraeg = for the Welsh course

Nos da :-)
