Would "syrpreis" be accepted? That's the word used in the BBC Big Welsh Challenge.

The Welsh word is syndod.

syrpreis is just a representation of the English word using roughly equivalent Welsh spelling.

I suppose it's hard to decide when to draw the line between Wenglish that is common enough to be accepted in the course and words that are too Englishy. I occasionally add words to a tiny cards deck of Wenglish words and their counterparts as it seems useful to know both :)
