Six members had an enjoyable session trying to get their brains and vocal chords co-ordinated in an attempt to pronounce some lovely long Welsh place-names.
We also attempted some useful everyday phrases such as 'good morning' and 'cup of tea' and worryingly the words for 'danger' and 'hospital'! Thanks to Anne, Awen and Ruth for their input - it was great fun.
There are no future workshops scheduled unless and until there is a request to re-convene.
We live on the border with Wales and often wonder how to pronounce our neighbouring town's names, this group aims to correct that.
For details of the next workshop please see Events
We welcome suggestions, please contact the Welsh Pronunciation group secretary
Following the initial get together earlier this year which was enjoyed by about a dozen members it has been decided to have another occasional session.
We shall meet at The Temple Bar Inn in Ewyas Harold at 11 a.m. on Wednesday 4th June.
At the first 'workshop' we looked at local place names and their derivation which is often very descriptive in Welsh. We looked at the alphabet and had great fun trying to get to grips with saying the sounds correctly.
Don't worry if you didn't come to the first session.There is no test or exam involved!
We shall be guided by our fellow members who have spoken or studied Welsh and we shall have a light - hearted look at the language and shall all attempt to pronounce some local place names correctly in nothing else.
It would be helpful if you could indicate by email if you think you might like to come so that we can tell the pub roughly how many
On Wednesday the 15th Jan 2014 a group of 12 met in the Temple Bar,Ewyas Harold to have an informal meeting on Welsh pronunciation. This was to find out about the Welsh alphabet and basic phonetic sounds. There was lots of lively discussion and laughter and it was agreed we would all meet up again on Wednesday the 19th February at the Temple Bar at 11.00a.m.
