Does 'Enw da' mean both 'good reputation' and 'good name' in context....
So for example ... I saw the name for Greylag geese as "Gwydd wyllt"...which I thought was a 'good name' (an apt name)....considering they are quite angry geese to passersby in certain seasons!But would you say 'enw da' for "thats a good name for them!".....without saying they have a good reputation
Yes - context is what decides, as in almost all cases of supposed 'ambiguity'.And in fact we even have exactly this example in English, don't we?
Pierre Bezukhov? That's a good name!vs.I wouldn't want to damage Pierre Bezukohov's good name.
You'd struggle to, after the bear incident!
Yes, afraid so - as Philip and Sionned have said, you'd use either future or conditional to talk about yfory...
You'll hear both, but 'licio' far more often...
I had a peek at the course guides for Course 1 and Level 1 Northern, and I see that licio is what is taught in those lessons. In the southern Course, we learn hoffi. Curious if that is because @Iestyn naturally uses hoffi? I don't want to sound like a learner, I want to sound like Iestyn
Does anyone know a Discord-Channel for Welsh speakers?
Would anyone who knows what a discord-channel is please tell me, as curiosity may otherwise do to me what it did to the cat!
I'm afraid I'm with henddraig - what's a Discord-Channel?
I know there is one for all celtic langauges which then has a Welsh channel (or whatever it's called ) here's the code: KWeDsHt
@aran and @henddraig - it's a chat thingy, I'm not very familiar myself so that's all I can say
Do you mean this one https://discord.gg/qdTSWPb ?I joined this channel, but there aren't many Welsh speakers/learners
Discord-Channels are kind of like Teamspeak. It's a server where people can meet up, talk and chat
Sort of like the Forum? @Novem does this discord thing mean anything to you? I believe some people chat yn y Gymraeg on Facebook or twitter????sorry @Cookie, I'm the wrong generation! Think Nain!
Oh, so the codes change? Or there are different ones? I'm very new to discord Yeah, I meant that one Are there not enough Welsh learners? I think I saw some conversation there today Have you tried going to the #Cymraeg-Welsh text channel?
@henddraig - It's sort of like the forum, but instead of it being neatly (or somewhat neatly) organised into topics, you have just one "topic" that moves a bit faster and with shorter messages. Like a group conversation (I think)
Yeah I'm the one spamming that Channel The other text channels are way more alive
Ah Well, then I haven't heard of any, sorry!
I notice that @Y_Ddraig_Las makes an appearance in the Cymraeg_Welsh channel, as well as @Cookie ....
Newbie question here but thought I'd ask anyway. the pronunciation of Cymraeg on the challenges is like the english 'come rag' but all the local welsh speakers where I live (Valleys) pronunce it: 'come r'eye'g' is this just optional or a type of softening? Thank you
Hi, Paul. It's just accent. The question comes up regularly on here, so you might find some interesting stuff by scrolling up or searching. In the mean time, here is a clip of Jonathan Davies pronouncing it "Cymrag"
Maybe it depends which valley? I certainly know it as 'eye' from Abettawe/Llanelli , but possibly from time in the north! I associated @Iestyn's pronounciation witn Gwent, but he lives in Llandysul!
But he used to live in Caerffili. I think.
