"Before the police arrive."

Translation:Cyn i'r heddlu gyrraedd.

February 17, 2016



Just so I'm prepared, what is Welsh for "We must hide the body"?


"Heddlu" sounds like "Heavy" to me, an informal way of say "Police".

I wonder if there's a relationship between the two.

Edit: I'm thinking that "Heavy", in this sense, could be seen as an anglefication of "Heddlu".


Heddlu comes from hedd = peace and llu = a host/force, so no relation to heavy - unless it helps you remember the word!
