Bore Dydd Calan

This somehow seems appropriate during a pandemic

Dydd calan yw hi heddiw,
Rwy’n dyfod ar eich traws
I ‘mofyn am y geiniog,
Neu grwst, a bara a chaws.
O dewch i’r drws yn siriol
Heb newid dim o’ch gwedd;
Cyn daw dydd calan eto
Bydd llawer yn y bedd.

Ronald Hutton in The Stations of the Sun: A History of the Ritual Year in Britain (2001-02-0) as an example of a Calennig rhyme from 1950s Aberystwyth.

Listened to Nos Wener Ffion Emyr, 04/12/2020 from BBC Radio Cymru
Ffion Emyr yn tanio'r penwythnos gyda dwy awr o gerddoriaeth.
Dwy awr o gerddoriaeth a sgyrsiau difyr. Tybed pwy sydd yn gallu gwneud y coctêl gorau yng Nghymru ar nos Wener?
Hefyd, mae Gwawr Eleri James yn dewis cân i'w ffrindiau; ac mae Manon Williams yn hel atgofion am ei diwrnod priodas.
Listening out of curiosity while working in the kitchen.

Read - Want to Read: Modern Welsh by Gareth King (Routledge)
This new expanded edition of Modern Welsh is the ideal reference source for all speakers and learners of Welsh, suitable for use in schools, colleges, universities and adult classes at all levels. Focusing on contemporary spoken Welsh, this new enlarged edition features a substantial new function-based section, explaining and exemplifying a wide range of sentence and phrase patterns. Notes on variations between dialects and between spoken and formal written forms have also been expanded. The Grammar presents the complexities of Welsh in a concise and readable form. Common grammatical patterns and parts of speech are discussed in detail, and extensive cross-references make the book comprehensive and easy to use.
I started this back in September, but hadn’t bookmarked it?
Listened to SaySomethingIn... Welsh: Level 1 Introduction from saysomethingin.com

This is pretty good and generally intense as a mental workout. Not too dissimilar to Duolingo, but it doesn’t have any visual portions for looking at or reading words. Perhaps in conjunction with Duolingo it would be a good speed course?

This particular post also makes me want to have a “study post” type/kind on my website. I’ve generally not been tracking it directly for things that aren’t otherwise reading, but it could include writing, listening, speaking, or otherwise working on educational related things that one might want to track: i.e. “how much time did I spend studying subject x?”

Suitable for complete beginners, this will support the learning you do in class or elsewhere. There are different topics ranging from greetings to discussing leisure interests. You can choose video subtitles or speech bubbles in Welsh or English to support your learning. A tutor guide will help you though the language clips, giving you an opportunity to practise. Learn Welsh wherever you go with MP3 audio and paper printouts. In time this will be a comprehensive course allowing you to progress in your learning.
Sadly, this website is painfully out of date and requires Flash.
Read Language in England and Wales - Office for National Statistics (ons.gov.uk)
Using data from the 2011 Census, we take a closer look at language within England and Wales. Those who reported English (or Welsh in Wales) as their main language accounted for 92.3% of the population, except in London where proportion was much lower. Those who reported another main language accounted for 7.7% of the population, with Polish topping the list of "other" main languages. London and the West Midlands saw the highest percentage of people who could not speak English "well" or "at all".
