威尔士语怎么读

威尔士人口大约300万,其中流利说威尔士语作为日常生活交流的大概几十万。虽然到威尔士旅游并不一定要掌握威尔士语,可是如果您能在去威尔士前做个小功课,学点威尔士语单词和发音,相比能为旅行增添不少乐趣和便利,让威尔士大叔大婶们也小吃一惊~哈哈,长话短说,这里uk2hand就为您介绍威尔士语的发音规则和发音方法。

威尔士语是凯尔特人(语)的一个分支但是和他的堂兄苏格兰的盖尔语和爱尔兰语(他们也是凯尔特人(语)的一个分支)的区别还是很大的。但是和Breton(法国)颇为相近。

Wales语普遍被称为Cymraeg是日耳曼语代表外国人的意思。他们自称是迦拉太人的后裔(好像和圣经还有点什么关系,不太了解圣经不太敢瞎翻)目前在威尔士大概有50万的人在使用威尔士语(威尔士300万人口,就是说只有六分之一的人口)另外在,英格兰,苏格兰和其他海外国家也有一,二十万人说威尔士语。

在Cardiff,Newport和Swansea及其周边地区,人们的日程语言是英语(这几个地区也是人口最为密集的地区,这也是为什么威尔士人不全说威尔士语的原因,Caredidd还是首都)也是为什么,在这一地区学习的学生,感受不到太多Wales语的影响的原因。(虽然,所有的公共场所都有威尔士语还有威尔士语的广播),但日常使用的都是英语,所以普遍都是对此视而不见,充耳不闻。

All the vowels can be lengthened by the addition of a circumflex (

 

威尔士语辅音:
For the most part b, d, h, l, m, n, p, r, s, and t are pronounced the same as their English equivalents (h is always pronounced, never silent). Those that differ are as follows:

C always as in cat; never as in since. Welsh words: canu (Kanee); cwm (come); cael (kile); and of course, Cymru (Kumree)

Ch as in the Scottish loch or the German ach or noch. The sound is never as in church, but as in loch or Docherty. Welsh words: edrychwn (edrych oon); uwch (youch ), chwi (Chee)

Dd is pronounced like the English th in the words seethe or them. Welsh words: bydd (beethe); sydd (seethe); ddofon (thovon); ffyddlon (futh lon)

Th is like the English th in words such as think, forth, thank. Welsh words: gwaith (gwithe); byth (beeth)

Ll is an aspirated L. That means you form your lips and tongue to pronounce L, but then you blow air gently around the sides of the tongue instead of saying anything. Got it? The nearest you can get to this sound in English is to pronounce it as an l with a th in front of it. Welsh words: llan (thlan); llawr (thlour); llwyd (thlooid)

Rh sounds as if the h come before the r. There is a slight blowing out of air before the r is pronounces. Welsh words: rhengau (hrengye); rhag (hrag); rhy (hree)

The most common expressions that Welsh-Americans come across are Cymanfa Ganu (Kumanva Ganee); Eisteddfod (Aye-steth-vod); and Noson Lawen (Nosson Lowen)

 

如果你仔细的阅读了上面的内容,你就应该知道,我的名字Cymru是什么意思了,是怎么个读法。

估计粗心大意的你就没有看,好帮你复习一下Cymru 读音:Kumree,意思:就是威尔士语,威尔士的意思了。

来一个小测试:

Gwd lwc. Ai hop ddat yw can ryd ddys and ddat yt meiks sens tw yw. Iff yw can ryd ddys, dden yw ar dwing ffaen and wil haf no problems at ol yn lyrnyng awr ffaen Welsh alffabet.

Good luck: I hope that you can read this, and that it makes sense to you. If you can read this, then you are doing fine and will have no problems at all in learning our fine Welsh alphabet.

如果你能读懂,就应该能明白她的意思了,恭喜你,你可以阅读威尔士语了。:)
