What is a biro?

A biro is a very popular brand of ballpoint pen that was at one time a very common word for one.

Welsh doesn't really have a simple word for this type of pen, especially since the Welsh word 'pen' means head in English.

This word as been adopted in parts of Wales to mean a writing pen.

This particular sentence has been deleted and the English word 'biro' has been replaced by 'pen' as the best translation.
