According to my usual dictionary (Gareth King's) the feminine version is actually spelled myfyrwraig (without the i) - though it is apparently so little used that it doesn't show up at all in Y Geiriadur Mawr! GM also has another word for student - efrydydd - which is actually a lot easier to say!


Well, every dictionary which has it will have "myfyrwraig"! Good catch, Sionned!
The Geiriadur yr Academi marks "efrydydd" as "occasional".
The Geiriadur Mawr -in my experience - does sometimes lack the odd word. Also, it hasn't been revised in quite a long time. A very good dictionary if you take those things into account.
Please feel free to correct my Welsh. My English, however, is beyond all hope.

One thing that I like about GM is that it continues to include a lot of now-obsolete words (with asterisks). Makes it much easier to translate 19th century letters and texts...

Today I managed to spell "around" as "arounf", so best not to rely on my typing skills! :smile:

Oh, I do that all the time, especially on my phone, but also on my desktop! :D
