Welsh Smash

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.

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

Also I accidentally put in the word that in the translator from welsh to English and it came out as tattoo

Welsh is hilarious
ble mae'r orsaf drenau is welsh for where is the train station
Rwy'n casáu comiwnyddiaeth is welsh for i hate communism
lle yw eich defaid is welsh for where are your sheep

@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)

@KofodDane what? Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

it's from call of cthulhu and translates as something like "in his home in r'lyeth dead cthulhu waits dreaming".... welsh is much worse just look at our place names.
