I really appreciate word of the day and find the word association and relevant meanings fascinating and easier to remember.
Hearing the pronunciation is an added bonus.
Just need some super glue now to make the words stick better in my memory. Thank you.
‘Bytholwyrdd’ is used quite often on “Garddio a mwy” even though all my dictionaries seem to favour ‘bythwyrdd’ leading me to believe the former is more northern (at least where the presenters are from).
Diolch for the new words! Now all I need is the ability to complain in Cymraeg (Ugh, this sucks and it’s a pain in the butt…etc) and I can truly enjoy my upcoming chore. But I can also relax with my family afterwards with a nighttime fire in the fire pit.
A Hwntw word will never escape my lips. I’ve heard a lot different speakers say they prefer ‘Sai’n’ to ‘dw i ddim yn,’ as it seems more natural. Not sure what is meant by ‘more natural,’ but I’ve been meaning to look into it.
Because we went on holiday I clicked the “unsubscribe” button in one of the emails concerning this topic. Now we are back home again I really would like to get the emails again but I have not been able to find out how to do that. Does anyone know how to start getting the emails on this topic again?
Gisella is correct about topic notifications. Below the last post and the general (blue) “Reply” button, there is a link for you to set how you wish to receive information about that topic. I believe the default is “Normal” which means you will only receive a notification if someone mentions you in the topic. I have most topics set on “Tracking” which means that, when I come to the forum, I will see how many new posts have come into those topics. When I want to receive emails for each new post, I set the topic to “Watching” and get an email with each new post. Apparently you can also set it to “Muted” which means you will never get anything about that topic
