Same question as to the gogs

Postby gerpsych » Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:16 am

This is embarrassing, where do I live ?

Ydw i'n byw yng Ngogledd Cymru neu ydw i'n byw yn Ganolbarth Cymru ? Dw i'n byw yn Nolgellau.

Is it North or Middle ?

Cheers

I'd say your in the, canolbarth: the reason Dolgellau was part of Meirionnydd before coming part of Gwynedd.

Yes I hear it!... Hiraeth - the link with the long-forgotten past, the language of the soul, the call from the inner self. Half forgotten - fraction remembered. It speaks from the rocks, from the earth, from the trees and in the waves. It's always there.

Meirionydd is Gog. No question in my mind.
No one ever drowned by getting out of their depth in a Welsh conversation.

Please DO read the forum guidelines. And how about putting up a poster or two in your locality?

That pleases me, but my friend Gareth in Pen-y-Groes states that: "everything past the Afon Llyfni is tu hwnt.." :wink:
Actually, I'd say north but I think administrively it's now mid-wales.

Never occurred to me that Dolgellau could 'count' as anything but gog. It's the visual effect of all that grey stone. I recognize that's not exactly an official deciding factor . . .

You are definitely in the North. If in any doubt, read the threads to see how those doing the Course 3 Southern version are struggling, yet the Northern version (well, as far as I've got anyway) is the easiest course yet :dance: .
Please feel free to correct my Welsh.

Finished Lesson 22 Course 3 (Northern).
