    There's plenty of words the Welsh language should expunge which of course would make it unworkable for most. Phonetic spelling does not a language make.

    There is no way I’m using the word Egg Plant!

    And what are we going to call Ballet, ‘poof dancing’?

    Actually, I agree on this one Dai.

    I'm learning Welsh myself (admittedly at a very slow rate) but I saw a Police notice posted on Twitter the other day that the Welsh speakers rightfully pointed out as incorrect, as the presumably English plod there had made up their own Welsh word for 'Banned'.

    The sign said 'Banio'.

    Not good.

    No, I already told you yesterday, you don't get to post on here like you didn't call me a "Tory cunt" and then flounce off the other night.

    I'm due an apology from you.

    Nuance

    Cul de sac

    Or as Toby Blair’s puppet master once said

    “The thing that's wrong with the French is that they don't have a word for entrepreneur”
