Welsh is such an enchanting language....

Which pronunciation of hwyl is correct? Gwyneth has used both hwill and hool depending on where in the sentence the word was. Does sentence position matter (stressed/unstressed)?

Welsh spelling is usually straightforward, but "wy" is one of the trickier things to master as it can have a few different pronunciations. In this case its a diphthong "oo + ee".

Why is "o" spelled "w"? Is there a reason to it?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sebtred

"w" is more of an u (oo) sound. And it's because "u" is already used to represent the "ee" sound.
