Understanding Welsh Place Names

What they mean and how to say them


Puzzled by Welsh place names - but want to know what they mean and how to say them? Look no further. This is an exciting full colour pocket guide, Understanding Welsh Place Names: What They Mean and How to Say Them - from outdoor specialists Northern Eye Books.

This innovative yet carefully thought out guide means non-Welsh speakers can now easily translate and understand place names all over Wales - on the map on road signs and out in the countryside. Written by native Welsh speaker Gwili Gog the book contains not only a comprehensive gazetteer of place names arranged county by modern county - with an authoritative explanation of what each name means - but also a potted history of the Welsh language. There is a look at pronunciation and a photographic exploration of place names in the landscape as well as key words accompanied by phonetic explanations of how to pronounce them. But perhaps the most notable element of this book is its themed approach to the ideas and beliefs that lie at the heart of the Welsh language.
