Y Niwl - Undegpedwar
A lot is getting written about Y Niwl right now, all good, and I’m also enjoying hearing many DJs across Britain struggle with the pronouciation.
The pronouciation guide online says this about the three different pronouncements of the letter ‘Y’…
short: as in “sit”, e.g., “cyn” (clear sound)short: as in “gun”, e.g., “yn” (obscure sound)long: as in “seen”, e.g., “dyn” (clear sound)
I’d say it sounds more like ‘Urgh’ with a silent ‘gh’, as if you’ve just seen something horrible. That’s how to say ‘Y’. Niwl doesn’t seem to be causing any problems.
Enjoy the vid.
