WELSH ENGLISH DIALECT

BENJAMIN JONES    Book Number: 87382    Product format: Paperback

Welsh English? Wenglish? Anglo-Welsh? Cambrian English? A Welsh 'Accent'? The English of Wales has over the last century at least been branded with many names and the grammar of Welsh English has its own rules, many of which derive from Welsh (Cymraeg). Focus fronting is for example 'quiet, he is' rather than 'he is quiet'. English was first transported to parts of Wales around the 1100s following the Norman Conquest as French speaking Normans set up Lordship Marches in areas like the Borders, Gower and Pembrokeshire. Here is a selection of words and anecdotes from the Land of Song covering Welsh expressions, jocular sayings of the eastern Borders and insights into these words' origins and anecdotal stories associated with them. There are collections of occupational words such as the Welsh mines and farms, unique Welsh terminology related to children's games, food customs and cultural traditions. So, don't be twp, mun - loose go of your worries, cwtch up in your lolfa with a lump of bara-brith and let the bewty of Welsh English echo around you. 80 page illustrated paperback with nice clear layout.
