Any knowledge as to whether the English interjection "Eeeeeew" is somehow derived ethymologically from the Welsh word for porridge?
Unlikely, seeing as English speakers in the U.K. only say that if they watch too much American television.
Porridge is schmeckerlecker! More seriously, is there a difference between the pronunciation of "brecwast" and the soft form of "frecwast"? They sound the same to me.
So you're saying there is a distinction, but I can't hear it. B and V aren't similar in English: B and P are, and V and hard TH. Maybe DL could do a section where hard and soft sounds are adjacent, so those of us who strain to hear would have a chance.
I don't hear it in this example. I slowed down the sentence three times, and the speaker is CLEARLY saying 'B'recwast. This bugs me.
I did ask this question in a different comment section but no one answered - what is the meaning of 'i' ? It seems like it has multiple non related meanings. Please can someone answer.
'i' can mean multiple prepositions like 'to', and 'for'. Of course, 'i' doesn't cover everything. I hope that helps.
Could someone please explain to me why brecwast is mutated in this sentence?
