My first post to break 200 notes, and almost reach 300 notes, was about welsh queer terms I'm so happy!! I was really worried that that post would only satisfy a small niche, since the amount of Welsh people online is super small and so the amount of Welsh queers is even smaller again. I'm just pleased that there's more people out there like me who enjoyed having that access to our terminology in our language

Hi! I didn't know that "heritage speakers" were a thing until I just saw your blog!!! Diolch for bringing this term into my life!!! If I'm understanding the definition on wiki correctly, then I'm definitely a heritage learner/speaker of Cymraeg!!!! 🥰🥰🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Lived in Cymru my whole life, barely ever been anywhere else, still live here, my whole family's here, I go back generations and on one side of the family, I have no idea where we started tbh, for all I know we could go back to Owain Glyndŵr times or even further! I picked up Cymraeg words as a kid as we all do in Cymru but only started very seriously learning it in the last year or so. COVID is horrible ofc but the pandemic has helped me knuckle down, get my ass on Duolingo, and finally get more in touch with my country's language and culture!!! 🥰💖 I've always been bummed out by the fact that I'm not classed as a native speaker despite living in Cymru and basically speaking Wenglish my whole life so this is a great term for me to replace that!!!! 🥰 diolch yn fawr. and don't worry, my kids will 100% be native speakers haha!!! Which means I have a lot of work to do in learning Cymraeg before I ever start a family. 😅🥰 Dwi'n wedi dilynwch ti, eich blog yn gwych!! 🥰💖🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿
Hey there!
I’m really glad I was able to introduce the term “heritage speaker” to you and help you label your identity better! I think a lot of Welsh people are actually Welsh heritage speakers without even realising it, in all honesty. It really is a fantastic term, though, as it helped me be able to be proud of my Welsh speaking identity without having the sadness of knowing I’ll never be considered a native speaker (much like you with your story). And yes! Please continue our language with your family in generations to come!!
Diolch am y comment caredig, a dw i’n gobeithio ti’n mwynhau fy mlog!!

Yes! There is! Sorry, I didn't realise that the Stonewall page only listed "ace", but the Welsh for asexual is "anrhywiol". Hope this helps :D
LGBTQIA+ Vocabulary in Welsh!
Hey, everyone! Since I'm a queer Welsh person, I figured it was important I share some of the common queer terminology we use in our day to day lives, but in Welsh! Enjoy!!
Lesbian - Lesbiaidd
Gay - Hoyw
Bisexual - Deurywiol
Transgender - Trawsryweddol
Pansexual - Panrywiol
Non-binary - Anneuaidd
Queer - Cwiar (Can also be seen just as queer)
Questioning - Cwestiynu
Tumblr media
All the information on this post has come from Stonewall, who's page has more terms than what I'm sharing here. Please take a look if that interests you. Also, feel free to share any additions or corrections! <3

Hey!! Random message sorry, I was wondering if you could help me out as a Welsh speaker? I'm writing a Viking-era novel right now and have some Welsh speakers among my characters (I'm using modern Welsh as ressources are scarce for Old Welsh lol). I have a supernatural entity in there which is based on old werewolf legends where one person could control packs of wolves, therefore I'd like to say the title "Lady of the wolves" - is "Arglwyddes y Bleidd-dynn" correct?? Thanks! :D
Hi there! Thank you for asking!
First things first, your novel idea sounds awesome. Secondly, “Arglwyddes y Bleidd-dynn” would translate as “Lady of the werewolves”, but if you would like it to translate to “Lady of the wolves” you can remove “-dynn” and instead use the full word of “bleiddiaid” (I’m not sure if that’s the translation you actually wanted or not, so I thought I’d tag it on the end just in case).
Thank you so much for asking and for writing a book including Welsh speakers! The representation is much appreciated! Also, thank you so much for asking Welsh speakers <3 Have a fantastic day :)

Small update: I've been briefly inactive due to health reasons, as well as having moved back into my university accommodation. I will be back to posting and I have some ideas for posts too. Thanks for sticking around while I've been gone

Inktober #5: Arawn
Arawn was the king of the otherworld in Welsh mythology , and liked to go hunting with his white hounds. One night, Pwyll, the ruler of a close kingdom, stole his prey, so Arawn decided to exchange his soul with Pwyll for one year, so Pwyll could defeat an old Arawn’s ennemy. Pwyll succeded, and during this time Arawn ruled Pwyll’s kingdom so well than when he returned , he saw prosperity and riches everywhere. They became really good friends, and Arawn even offered some otherworldy pigs to his son .
