Just made my first pass through gwers 15 of Course 3 South and was just curious about the pronunciation of gwael / yn wael and ta waeth. Since learning words such as llaeth and cael, I’ve got used to pronouncing these single-syllable ‘ae’ words and others like them in the Southern way, (ie. cael = Carl) and had begun to think that this was the case for all similar words in the South. But I’m guessing now that this is not the case? Unfortunately, I now have a tendency to pronounce all of the single-syllable ‘ae’ words like this!
Also, the lesson says that ‘seriously’ is ‘wir yr’, which is fine, but I have also been using ‘o ddifri’ for ‘seriously’ as learned from Pobol. Are these pretty interchangeable or is there a different emphasis? Not really familiar with ‘wir yr’.
Diolch yn fawr iawn.
