I’m Gonna Love Cwmsiencyn, by Grant Bentley

Recommended Posts

A delightful romp by Grant reveals that not all Welshmen (Welshboys?) are taciturn and deliberate. In fact, talking tidy may well catch on and sweep across Canada...

Good stuff. Don't miss it.

I have an acquaintance in Wales whom I correspond with, but I'm guessing he is not native Welsh because what he writes seems like pretty standard British.

I predict that I would have trouble listening to a Welsh speaker. It's bad enough trying to follow BBC dramas set in places like Newcastle.

I've no idea whether it is intended, but I think the w in 'cwm' is pronounced a bit like a single 'u'. So with my 'talent' for mispronouncing Welsh words, I see "Cwmsiencyn" as "Comes-again".

Nice story though, even though I don't see Welsh accented English spoken much like the depiction.
