I've never heard about this language before! 2 daya only of studying it and I'm already in love with it! No idea why I'm learning iyt though! Lol! It's so wonderful when you start learning a language you have never studied before! Thanks Duolingo!!!!!! I love thee.
Same here, I am doing 4 different courses here on duolingo but Welsh has something special about it!
At my local tesco, they have a notice about, tesco not being responsible, for peoples bikes. The English version has on the top all in capitals, and is larger, than most of the text: SORRY, but in Welsh, it has: Yn CHWITH; is "yn chwith" welsh for sorry, or would it mean, "leaving"
"chwyth" is "a breath". You're thinking of "yn chwith", but I've never actually heard anyone say that...
Chwith is 'left' (as in left and right rather than leaving) and you'd say 'yn chwith' if you've done something the wrong way, like put your jumper on back to front :-P
Now, this was a hard one. I took a long time to figure out what this word meant. But in all seriousness, I enjoy this duolingo course.
Makes you wonder if the Welsh term was ingrafted into English. Doesn't sound related to spiacente, pardon/perdon or others? I'm guessing so. 08Feb16
"Sori" is a loan from English "sorry" from Old English "sārig" (sorry, sad), which ultimately shares the same Proto-Indo-European root as Welsh "hoed" (pain).
