I like the sound of this word. It sounds... deep, like you're way far underwater. Or maybe I'm just being a word nerd.
I can't type that 'w' on my phone, but wow! that 'w' is so cool! I love that little guy!
Gboard is good, add welsh in settings and ŵ is added when you hold down w. At least for android.
It's the first time I see this letter with the "little hat". Fantastic this world of languages!
My keyboard won't type this. The 'w' shows as a '2' (when held down), regardless of the language keyboard I use. :'( (I try French (Canadian) as it's meant to have this, and google doesn't offer a Welsh one)
For 'ŵ' to work on android set keyboard to QWERTY and hold down the 'w' key. It gives '2/ŵ'.
I have Samsung G5, using Samsung keyboard set to QWERTY and no ŵ is available. Accented characters available for other letters but not w.
Letters with circumflex are long in Welsh -- ones without can be short or long (partly depending on the word shape).
For example, twr "pile; tor" has a short vowel, tŵr "tower" has a long vowel.
llyn "lake" has a short vowel, llun picture has a long vowel -- there, you can't tell just from the spelling that llun will rhyme with (Pen) Llŷn rather than with llyn.
Sometimes, short vowels are marked by a grave accent, e.g. bòs for "boss".
