Welsh Smash


I recently spent a week in Wales and it was an absolute joy. There's so much to see and the people are great, so I will most likely go back next year.

And one thing you can't help but be impressed by is the Welsh written language. Never before have I seen a language look so random, and I learned that it's a running joke that Welsh is basically just random key smashing. And I don't mean that mockingly, because that is bloody amazing.

@KofodDane well welsh is the oldest language still in use (it dates back to around the bronze age at least) though much of what is used today (i.e. modern welsh) was actually developed by an english man (who's name slips my mind right now) because he found middle welsh hard to understand (you don't want to see middle or old welsh lol)

A few days ago a Welsh Ministry issued a statement about the incidence of UFOs near the Cardiff Airport. The statement was in Klingon. Really.

Apparently no one cared. I suspect Klingon is easier to understand than Welsh.

What boggles me is the Welsh emmigration to Chile over a century ago. They speak very pure Welsh, --with a Spanish accent.

@TheDoctorStarman2000 Hence the reason why everyone types it as Llanfair PG!

@crwydryny: The fact that there exists a quadruple l in Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch should give a hint.

@crwydryny Omg, I really wonder who came up with the Welsh language and why it had to be those random typed words:XD:

@carcinoGeneticist funny thing is I reciently tried to teach a friend in america how to say a few words in welsh (all the fun ones ;-) ) her response every time she see's LL now is "IT'S THAT THING"


also for the reccord it's not compleatly random... it's random key smashing without hitting "J" "K" "Q" "V" "X" or "Z" so remove those keys from your keyboard then randomly smash it (at least traditionally, some people now include the J)
