Hi, I read quite a lot of Welsh language novels and literature these days (as well as practising spoken Welsh) so just wondered if any one had any recommendations of books e.g. Gareth king (of which I own most) that cover this specifically?
This is my first time here, I would love to know if there is an equivalent of early learning reading books in Welsh, I am on challenge 2 enjoying it but feel slightly anxious and overwhelmed at times. Sorry I can’t suggest any grown up books for you, but in time who knows.
If you have a browse through the ‘Book Club’ thread here The SSiW Welsh Book Club 📖 📚 👓 - it’s quite a long thread by now and covers all sorts of abilities but there will be certainly be some good suggestions on there.
If you’ve got all the Gareth Kings, then my other suggestion would be Golwg Ar Iaith by Non Emlyn. It’s a grammar workbook for people doing GCSE Welsh, and cross-references Y Chwiliadur Iaith by the same author.
However it is a grammar workbook, rather than a guide to formal written Welsh, eg - wyd passives and literary tenses etc.
Hi, thanks everyone for your responses. It’s formal literary books I’m interested in (e.g use of rydym) so I will take a look at those suggestions @siaronjames. Gareth King books explain things like ‘ir’ and ‘wyd’ very well but I was looking for a book that covers formal writing specifically rather than in part. Thanks again.
