Mine is ‘canys’. It’s an old word used often in the bible. Though I’m not religious, I do love how beautiful it sounds and how subtle it is. It means ‘because’ or ‘since’ and is used before an adjective.
But what about ‘pendwmpian’ or ‘slebog’…?
What is yours?
A phrase more than a word - “mae hynny yn debynnu” = “that depends”. I try to make a point of saying it at least once a week.
Saying and feeling “Bendigedig!” is a great joy.
Datblygu… Have had lots of it here over the years!
My favorite word changes as I learn new vocabulary but Bendigedig is great fun to say! I guess some of my children like it too because they named the neighbors new horse “Bendigedig”.
my almost 3yr old has a new favorite word as well…
David: Mommy can David have a cheese stick? (speaks in third person… the joys of language learning)
David: Coffi Du!!!
I thought maybe it was a funny fluke but then yesterday we went out to eat and when I brought him his food he shouted “Coffi Du!!”. Apparently in our home the words “coffee du” mean HOORAY
That’s a super cute phrase.
It’s fun living next door to the village of Pontrhydfendigaid = The Bridge over the Blessed Ford. The “Blessed” refers to Abaty Ystrad Fflur = Strata Florida Abbey on its outskirts.
Great story about David’s vocab.
