when do you use ''e'n'' and when do you use ''o'n'' or can it be either


They have the same meaning -- which one people use generally depends on where you come from. (I believe that o is mostly a northern thing while elsewhere you'll hear e.)


Apparently there used to be a Welsh TV comedy programme called 'Fe a Fo' (literally, Him and Him) about two guys, one from the north and one from the south.


"Fo a Fe" actually, a very funny programme starring Guto Roberts as a chapel-and-eisteddfod-going organ-playing northerner ("Fo") whose daughter had married the son of Ryan Davies, a boozing, betting southern ex-miner ("Fe"). The clash of cultures as they lived with their children was hilarious. http://cy.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fo_a_Fe Good grief, I see it ran from 1970 to 1977, when Ryan died - was it really that long ago?


First guy could be my grandad


Does anyone else hear licio'r coffi, not licio coffe?


The translation of "licio" is "like", so and "hoffi" is also "like". Can anybody explain the differences or when i should use the one or the other? Thank you!


Both licio and hoffi are widely used all over Wales for 'liking'. Use either.
