Your favourite welsh word so far?
I have just come across the word for dress Ffrog! That made me smile, I also love hoffi coffi (although technically that is two words)!
What is yours?
I just love the phrase "nac ydw" it sounds like "knock-a-due," all one word, and for some reason makes me smile every time I hear it.
Brilliant! Not sure I will ever be able to say that without thinking that now!
Prynhawn, the word for afternoon. I've known it for years and always thought it was funny.
Sglodion! it just sounds and seems so obscure and doesn't fit the word at all in a fantastic way
I don't know if you can find it on the course but "eirinen wlanog" is hilarious as it literally translates to "woolly plum" and means peach :D
Fun :) Cornish calls a peach a "woolly apple"... (aval gwlanek). (And tomatoes are "love apples" - aval kerensa.)
Aw, love apples, that's cool! :D There are so many 'cute' words in Welsh... like 'bwci' - 'ghost' ^^
After just doing the first few lessons, I'd say tegannau. And also orennau. I don't know why, but there's something really satisfying about those plural forms.
Bendigedig (fantastic) is such a fun word to say.
Otherwise, definitely llongyfarchiadau (congratulations), simply because as a kid I was always ridiculously impressed whenever my headteacher used to say it.
Llongyfarchiadau is one of my favourites too. My other favourite at the moment is gwdihŵ, which is the south Walian word for owl. I don't know if either of those are taught in this course though.
Cymraeg. Irony right, I like Welsh as my favorite word in Welsh. It's honestly such a cool word.
I like beic too, because it's just spelled very differently.
My favourite expression is Mae hi’n bwrw hen wragedd a ffyn :) In my native language (the Flemish variety of Dutch) the expression "it's raining old women" exists as well, so it makes me feel like Flanders and Wales have something (admittedly rather bizarre) in common.
