Interesting choice of vocab...is squash very popular in Wales?


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

It's a racket sport like Tennis, but played with a small rubber ball instead. Quite popular in Wales :)

Oh, that kind of squash. So, is the food squash the same word?

If you mean what in Britain is usually called a courgette, then:

  • courgette (courgettes) - just sticking with the same ?French loan-word
  • corbwmpen (corbwmpenni) = small pumpkin/marrow

Isn't chwarae supposed to undergo soft mutation after "i"?

No, the letter ch is not one of the mutatable consonants.
