ysobel: (welsh)
The thing that seems to be throwing me off the most about welsh pronunciation is the letter u.

I'm fine with dd being a voiced th, fine with f being v, fine with ff being f, fine with w being a vowel. But u being ee trips me up every damn time.

The Iau of Dydd Iau is not yow but rhymes with sigh. Llun (Monday) is hleen. Sul (Sunday) is seel. Etc.

At least Dydd Sadwrn (Saturday) not only is pronounced in a way I can remember, but is a connection I can remember. Yay Saturn!
