Mae'n ddrwg gyda fi - wn i mo'r gair.
My only drinking has been drinking pubs in Gwent & I guess that area is
probably too anglicized for such expressions. A former colleague of mine
who was learning Welsh complained about its dearth of sware-words -
"They're all to do either with sex or religion!" she complained. (Thinks:
Is English so different in this regard?)
Anyway why I know the odd vulgarity (i.e. taboo word), my knowledge of
Welsh profanities is practically nil. Sorry ;-)
