    Some exciting text about bin collections (I think). Stole off the council website lol

    Yn dilyn yr eira a'r rhew pan fethwyd â chasglu biniau gwyrdd / biniau brown / bocsys glas mae'r gwasanaeth yn gweithio'n galed i ddal i fyny.

    Mae casgliadau'r wythnos hon fel sydd wedi ei nodi ar y calendr:
    Arfon: sbwriel tŷ (bin gwyrdd) ac ailgylchu (bocs glas)
    Dwyfor: gwastraff bwyd a gardd (bin brown) ac ailgylchu (bocs glas)
    Meirionnydd: sbwriel tŷ (bin gwyrdd) ac ailgylchu (bocs glas)

    Rydym wedi llwyddo i gasglu o'r rhan fwyaf o lefydd yr wythnos hon. Os nad ydym wedi llwyddo i'ch cyrraedd, gadewch eich biniau / bocsys glas allan. Byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i'w casglu gynted ag sy'n bosibl.



    Fascinates me - as you may tell :p

    I think it's mostly noise and letters rather than actual words..... Many welsh disagree with me :D

    Welsh is so interesting to listen to but holy crap for ever trying to learn how to actually speak it!

    It's just such a weird language. And a distinct shortage of vowels going on.

    I still hope to one day be able to learn Welsh dog commands for training my corgis. :p

    That is just so weird! I love languages that have that feel to them, though. Welsh, German, Old English, Latin...pity I can't even get my brain to learn Spanish. ROFL

    Stay: Aros - ar-ros (you have to almost roll the r)

    Come (here): tyd yma - Tim-ah (the y in tyd is almost pronounced UH, but not quite)

    Roll Over ;) : troy drosodd - troy drosoTH (short th think V again)

    Okay, you have no idea how awesome it is you posted this. For some reason last week I went on a mystical quest to search out welsh and welsh accents, and my google-fu FAILED.

    THANK YOU!

    that's so cool - I've actually always wondered what welsh sounds like, given its severe vowel deficiency! It sounds sort of german-ish to me.

    Hrm....yah, it does. Anyone ever tried the Heimlich on a Welsh speaker to see what pops out? Maybe they're actually speaking German or something. Hell, maybe even English. Hard to tell with all that garbalage going on.

    Ahh I love the Welsh language! One of my favorite bands, Super Furry Animals, often sings in Welsh. Their album "Mwng" is entirely in Welsh and it's great! I can't understand what they're saying, but I can get the overall feeling of the songs.
