sian, west wales Welsh yw? (42) RE: Welsh yw? 12 May 11

Well - not sure I'd agree that there are as many Welshes as there are places but you can certainly get thrown by certain words. My family are all north Welsh but I've spoken most of my Welsh in the south west. It took my cousins years to ask what in the world 'yn gwmws' was, as they would say 'yn hollol'. And don't get me started on milk! But, in general, I have no problem travelling through Wales and speaking Welsh with no problem, regardless.

And, asking for a "peint o baent" ... you're showing your age - as do I! I guess the retirees who are working at B&Q to shore up their pensions will sympathize but the youngsters will think we're from another planet! And so the world turns.
