G'day to all of you out there - is there a Celtic cyberspace - we feel
there ought to be..
We are recent members of this list, so probably this question has been
Why do the Welsh not speak gaelic, if they are also Celts.
My dad was born in Gilfach Goch in the Rhondda Valley in south Wales, and
none of his large family spoke a word of Welsh, so he did not carry it on
to us. When we went to Wales later on on holiday it seemed to be spoken
only in the North of Wales, and then predominantly if they knew there were
strangers around - i.e. 'us', as in the shops, we could hear them speaking
English, but when we went to buy anything, they reverted to Welsh amongst
themselves. How do you spell
Yakky Dar...?? and what does it mean?
We are enjoying the postings - like Cindy from Alaska, our sense of humour
is also warped. For instance we have a stuffed wombat called 'Bronwyn' -
she doesn't know what Yakky Dar means either
