Not sure if I posted this before: this is an older article, just about “Lowri” and the real Lowri:
Establishes (if there was any doubt) that “Lowri”/Lowri is a real gog. Therefore so was Elen.
I’m interested because I’ve found the speech of Gwenno’s/Carwyn’s family to be relatively neutral in terms of north-south. I’ve noticed some southern structures in Iestyn’s speech, but that’s about it. No doubt someone with a better ear for accents would be able to judge more accurately.
We read in the Cymry Fyw article that Elen went to Cardiff university. That might have influenced her speech, especially if she remained in the area after uni, as students sometimes do. (Don’t know if Lowri also went there; it’s not mentioned in that article).
In the story, we know that Gwenno, Carwyn et al have moved from elsewhere. I can’t remember if it was ever specified from where, but presumably from the south, or at least more south than “Glanrafon”.
Does anyone else have any thoughts on the speech of Gwenno and her family?
