sian, west wales Welsh yw? (42) RE: Welsh yw? 13 May 11


Yes, the good old accents are certainly dying out. I could always read what the Preseli people were writing but the way they spoke it was too fast and furious for me. But I can say the same thing of Cofis, et al. There are just enough words that are 'different' to make it interesting. And there isn't anything particularly Welsh about that. Even in North America, my part of Canada drinks pop and parts of the States to the south drink soda. And then there's couch/sofa ... and when I was a kid we had a chesterfield. What the hey; rich tapestry of life and all that.
