"Double" letters

Post by Dysgwr » 06 Jun 2007, 08:49


The thought just struck me - and I cant find an answer anywhere - that if there are certain letter combinations, in Welsh, that only count as one letter (e.g. CH, LL etc) then how are these capitalised at the begining of a word...

Is it right to put LLoyd or Lloyd

Thanks for the insight.

As far as I have found, it's Lloyd. So, just one ...  Llewellyn is written with one capital letter as well

Any double letters in Welsh are only capitalised with the first part e.g dd-Dd ll-Ll ff-Ff and so forth! :)
