I have heard songs help with learning. Coffi Du.
Nice, I'll never forget it! (which I spelled "nefer fforget". I guess I've had too much Welsh today. Or not enough coffi du.)
A real question though: does anyone know if "dwisho" as in "dwisho coffi du cryf" is an informal or dialectal form of "Dw i eisiau"?
It's informal, and a gogledd form.
I wondered, just for a moment, whether gogledd meant 'googled'! Oops!
Ha! Bendigedig! Diolch yn fawr!
I love that song! Have a Lingot! XD
I think they pronounce "du" a bit like the "du" in French. '_'
It's different from the French "du".
In South Wales it's pronounced just the same as di.
In North Wales it's a different vowel sound, a bit like the "e" in "roses" - it's how a Russian or Polish speaker would say "ды" or "dy".
Thank you. :D I know how it should be pronounced. It's just when I listen to that song, I feel that I heard them sing "coffi dyu". :D
Black in Irish is dubh.
