Is Welsh "P Celtic" or "Q Celtic"?

anyway I hope this helps.

Canwll I think since "canwll" is a cognate of (or related somehow to cnadle it's safe to start with the word and like a if you say "candle" [can-dəl] then drop the "d" and get [canəl]if it is then replace the schwa in "canəl" with the "oo" I really don't know if it would be [ca-nool] or [can-ool] or [can-nool] and then the only other problem I have is the the double L ("ll") from Celtic languages really doesn't have a correspondent sound in English.

Corfe is easy I think, to pronounce it take "Corvette" then drop the "ette" [corv]

I think it sound something approximately like [canool* corv]
*unsure of the double L sound

We can't check now, because I think I deleted my scandalous messages there especially once I realized you aren't an adult. Or weren't. Whoops! My bad!

This IS very helpful, Neapolitan. So I should be calling Corfe "Corv" instead of my preferred "Corfeeeee." Hmm. I still kind of like "Corfeeeee," even if it isn't a correct Welsh pronunciation.

The meaning of CanwllCorfe is pretty cool: "corpse candle." That's what Corfe said. So, I think you are right that "Canwll" means "candle." Therefore, I conclude that "corfe" must mean "corpse," which would make sense. It also means that I think CanwllCorfe should change his name to CorfeCanwll if he really wants the meaning to be "Corpse Candle," unless Welsh inverts word order compared to English.

Now, next question: what *is* a corpse candle? Maybe that's some kind of candle you set by the body of your beloved in Wales as you feel misery over the loss of his or her spirit/mind. Now I'm sad, reminded of death.

But I'm happy to see you posting here, Neapolitan! I always have glowing things to say about you. You are so funny and kind-spirited! Who else on MB would take the time to think so earnestly about the pronunciation of CanwllCorfe?

Me, that's who!

oh the dread double L! It's is a voiceless lateral fricative and the symbol for the phoneme is [?] which is appropriate imo. It appears in Welsh place names like "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysil iogogogoch." My friend taught me how to say double L in Scottish Gaelic and I was a bit reluctant to explain it because it so weird and different.

the pronunciation for "cannwyll"
cannwyll

Just jump to 2:53, for the double L

yeah I've seen, TheBigTree was comparing me to some cartoon character like the Underdog or Felix the Cat, and you jumped right in there and defended me, that nice of you I don't know what to say, it kinda reminds me of a movie quote

VEGANGELICA: You know, I hope I'm not the only person in the world that knows what an incredible person you are.
Neapolitan: Well, at this point in time, I'm afraid you are ...

Well I was funny, I don't think I can be funny anymore. I was takin' in the back room and tuned up a bit, I was told this here is a music forum and they don't want anyone out of tune around here.
