Saying Hello & Goodbye in Welsh

Postby Boadicea » 28 Jun 2013, 06:51

Hi there,

I was just wondering if Druids have any sort of hello or goodbye they use on a personal level with friends or other members? I'm also just curious because I enjoy linguistics... So, how do you say hello and good bye and how should they be pronounced?

Thank you all!

NOTE TO STAFF: I put this same post in some of the other language sub-forums - I'm not trying to spam or anything, I'd just like to learn this in several of the languages that existed during the time of the original Druids.

Shwmae (shoo-my) is Welsh for Hi.

Helo is hello...pronounced the same way.

and hwyl fawr (hoo-il vowr) is good bye

Good luck with your celtic studies. I hope that this helps.

"Hello" yn Gymraeg ydy "Helô" neu Hylô". Chyfarchiad anffurfiol yn y Gymraeg yn "Shwmae" amlwg "Shum-aye"



"Hello" in Welsh is "Helô" or "Hylô". An informal greeting in Welsh is "Shwmae" pronounced "Shum-aye"

Shumae (Chyfarchiad anffurfiol) cyfateb i "how are you"

Shumae (Informal greeting) translates to "how are you"

Cyfarchiad ffurfiol ydy "Helô, syt wyt ti?"

A formal greeting is "Helô. syt wyt ti?

Hello, how are you?

Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)
