Welcome to WELSH-L!

Welsh language discussion list

Problems to: welsh-l-request@listserv.hea.ie

Welcome to WELSH-L! We hope you will enjoy the discussions on this list, and that you will want to be part of the debates. WELSH-L has existed since November 1992, and provides a forum where native speakers and more advanced learners of Welsh can interact over the Internet.


1: List policy: IMPORTANT

Please note that WELSH-L is intended for discussions in Welsh (or Breton or Cornish). Postings in English (or French) are acceptable if they are directly related to one of these Celtic languages (eg. grammar questions). Within these limits, discussion may be on any topic that the subscribers wish to debate.

If your main concern is to post (and read) in English, or to begin learning Welsh, you might be better served by one of the following:

a) The soc.culture.welsh newsgroup.

b) The Welsh language learners' list CYMRAEG-L

To subscribe to CYMRAEG-L, send a message to
listproc@lists.missouri.edu
saying: subscribe CYMRAEG-L [your-address your-name]
for example: subscribe CYMRAEG-L diana@oseda.missouri.edu Diana Hammond

c) The CELTIC-L Celtic culture discussion list (in English).

To subscribe to CELTIC-L, send a message to listserv@listserv.hea.ie saying:
subscribe CELTIC-L Your Name
substituting your own name where appropriate.
