Everyone nose its
Penarth is not Penaaaaahhhrrrth.
Can’t believe no ones mentioned Beddau.
And an English person trying to say any of these places
Pontypridd.... pridd as in breathe. So you say it. Straight away, Pontyprid
That's the one it's the long ahhhhhhh
Totally wrong!!! It's Lower Caerphilly.
Thank fuck I grew up in Penarth. At least iz speaks proper
Isn't that supposed to be Pee Narth as spoken by the western Penarthian Toffs.
Nah. Pen arth. Said in almost royalistic plum in mouth and in arse kinda way
No! I know a few natives of Penarth and they always speak of it as Pee narth. Especially at their cheese and wine parties.
This, does my head in that the people living there can’t even pronounce it right
The town's been infiltrated by outsiders since they started doing up the bay etc. and moved out the ruffians to Barry to make way for the influx on newbies who don't speak proper
A few years back, Mrs TDA and I were lucky enough to be able to have a retirement / change of lifestyle holiday of a lifetime.
On the evening of my birthday, we found ourselves in the Atherton Highlands above tropical Queensland at this fair establishment
We had a fantastic evening there with the locals and the beer and food was superb. It turned out that the family of the owner has emigrated from a village in South Wales, the name of which his wife had written down but nobody could pronounce. The note got passed around the locals who were completely clueless for a couple more rounds and, as the beer flowed, the pronunciation got worse. Eventually, I wrote it phonetically for them ....
(True story )
People can’t spell it either
If it wasn't for an ageing mother on her own, I'd be out there myself
I grew up in Penarth and it was always pronounced Pen-arfff
I'd love to go back. The country is immense and there is so much to see, but it's like stepping back 30 years in terms of sophistication and facilities.
