I think you should write it prynhawn, but pnawn is more how it is pronounced in casual conversation.
Hi Emily, Prynhawn is prounounced Prun-hown
Pryn rhymes with run, and hawn sounds like how.
Hope this helps!
Oh! I always thought it was 'prin' as in princess! Thank you, the more you know huh :)
Etymological question... do the parts of the words seperate as well? Meaning part means "noon" and another means "after" or something similar. Or is it simply a stanalone creation? Diolch
Apparently, it's from pryd "time" and nawn "nones" -- i.e. the time of the ninth hour of the Roman day, or originally about 3 pm. Hence, the time of the nones was afternoon.
The second part is related to English "noon" which also derives from the same Latin word as the Welsh one.
