Welsh for "Gargoyle"?
My mom and I are learning Welsh together, and for Mother's Day my brother, my husband, and I (all the kids!) are giving her gargoyle-themed gifts (she loves gargoyles).
I'd love to include the Welsh translation of "gargoyle" or "the gargoyle" in the card. It's an uncommon enough word and I'm enough of a beginner that I'm not having much luck finding a translation that I'm confident is right.
Gargoil (plural is “gargoiliau”). To say “the gargoyl”, you write “y gargoil”.
You can use either "croeso" or "iawn" as responses to "thank you (diolch)".
I suspect she loves grotesques more than gargoils, unless she only likes them to be part of a drainage system:)
A fair distinction! Indeed, I gather that she loves both grotesques and gargoyles as much for their history as their resultant mythology. I'll gladly include the word(s) for "grotesque" if you know the appropriate Welsh noun. I found "grotésg" but that's listed as an adjective. Is it the same word if used as a noun?
