This should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it illustrates my previous comment "it's all Welsh to me". As an aside, any language that adopts the word "pipity pong" for a microwave oven has my vote.
However, having spent the last three weeks in South Wales, not many people speak or understand the Welsh language down there either! It seems more people in North Wales speak Welsh than in the south.
I live near to the City of Chester, an English Welsh border city. There is an old bye law that allows an Englishman to shoot a Welshman with an arrrow if they are found to be within the city walls after 10 o'clock at night. This is not a very friendly attitude and I for one have never taken that option!
