"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Welsh email

It was  half term last week, so we had no Welsh course. The week before, our topic was the weather and the sheet we had been given, not done by our own tutor, had a couple of omissions and regional variations on it so, harking back to my primary teacher days, I revamped it and gave it to our tutor to look at. She thought it was great and asked me to email it to her so that she could use it with all her groups, which I duly did,
In reply, I got this:
Diolch yn fawr Jenny!
Wela i chi wythnos nesa ar ddydd Gwyl Dewi!

Ymlaciwch dros y penwythnos.

The point is, I understood it - all of it! Which I think is da iawn - don't you?

Nos da.

Jennyta said...

P'nawn da, Cro. Sut dach chi heddiw?

Cro Magnon said...

flinedig iawn. (It must be all this Welsh).

Jennyta said...

Ah, that must be southern welsh. Here 'tired' is 'wedi blino'. Hope you will be 'bendegedig' today!

Katherine said...

I'm very impressed. And completely lost. It looks odder than word verification.

Jennyta said...

You should see some of the grammar rules, Katherine!
