How did 'taenlen' become the Welsh word for spreadsheet? Where does it come from?
It is a compund noun made up from:
- taenu - spreading, to spread
- llen - a curtain, a sheet, which has been soft mutated to -len as the second part of a compound noun.
Thank you. That really enriches the learning. Compounds are so enriching - usually two words for the price of one and as a bonus you get reminded of a mutation practice.
Thank you. Part of the pleasure of Welsh for me is discovering the compounds. The words within the words 1) help me remember 2) usually also remind me of mutation guidelines.
