The village hall


Ok so neuadd y pentre is the village hall,
But whats A village hall?

That would just be “neuadd pentre”.

Strictly speaking, neuadd bentref, though something is telling me that neuadd bentrefol is another option.

I understood it as “neuadd y pentre” meaning “village hall”, as in “hall of the village”. I assumed the a / the aspect was just being glossed over a bit, so it’s used for both.
I may be completely wrong though…
Edited to remove the smiley.

I made the same assumption as netmouse, but does it really matter?

Hi guys,

Neuadd pentre does sound logical, i think this patter occurs a lot in Welsh, so its probably one of those subtle things that makes your Welsh better.

Thanks all
