What have YOU learned this week?
the Welsh word for Exhaust is "Egsost"
the Welsh word for 'rubbish' is 'sbwriel'
the Welsh word for 'saucepan' is 'sospan'
few more for you
I saw SOSPAN
I like "Sospan"
seem to remember from walking around a Welsh supermarket when I was younger that bacon is 'bacwn' and sausage is 'sosej'. That's whay my childhood memory tells me, anyway
but there is 'ng' and also 'mh'
FUC YOU VOWELS
Seriously, for real
For example the kernewek (Cornish) for pizza is pitsa.
It's so fucking stupid.
how on earth is one supposed to say the name JGJug?
it's not as though pizza is an 'english' word is it? there's no 'z' character in the Welsh alphabet so we just make do with what we've got and call it's pitsa. There's no 'x' character so say tacsi.
It just seems stupid that an Italian word that's good enough for the French, Germans, Spanish, Swedish etc. isn't good enough for the cornish and they make up a word with the same pronunciation.
Os gwelwch yn dda.
at least it was where i came from
where no-one goes
You are 18 and in Bridgend. You might not reach 19...
I am Welsh, remember.
I'll be fine.
means shut your mouth.
Which is how I'm going to type it from now on. Compulsory Welsh GCSE short course - you did me proud.
Also - Rydw i'n hoffi coffee.
called hoffi coffi :D
good sports: snooker - snwcer.
squash - SBONCEN.
Osgwelwchyndda (although I'm not too sure of the spelling) is Welsh for please!
Why oh why?
Os gwelwch yn dda?
Again, only compulsory welsh short course GCSE to back me up.
Also: Smoking = ysmugi (sp?). Brilliant word. It sounds so... smoky.
english is the only language i know anything about that has only one word for please.
yeah smoking = ysmygu, although we were told it's ok to say smocio as well. my friend from north wales was unimpressed "damn soutwalians, we have a proper word for it you know!"
Have any of you been introduced to the Ulster-Scots 'language' yet?
Bet you didn't know you could read another language, huh?
