more about Welsh pronunciation. Her rough approximation was
\lluh-oo\ is one syllable,
\ll\ represents the Welsh double "L", made by positioning your tongue
as if you were going to make an English "L" sound, then blowing
(without voicing, just the way you do when you go, "Shh!"); this is the
first sound you'll hear in the lesson at
\DH\ is a voiced "th", like the one in "bathe" and "thy" (as opposed to
the unvoiced "th" in "bath" and "thigh").
She didn't have time to research further right now, so it's just a
general guide, not tailored to your persona period. If you want
specific information on the pronunciation for your period, I can try to
get that for you. I'd recommend you go ahead and settle on a byname,
first, so you can ask for a complete pronunciation for the whole thing,
and expect it will take a month or more (because everybody's so busy
with the holidays and/or end-of-semester business just now).
