Not to mention "teleffon" and "telephone".

And if it's Newport, Gwent, then English (sorry, Saesneg) has been the
main language for centuries.

With best wishes,

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,






It did, but lots of legislation applied to "Wales & Mounmouthshire" so it
is quite logical that, when there was a major local government
reorganisation in the '70s, Monmouthshire became part of Wales.

Indeed it did, and ISTR that there was some doubt for some time as to
whether Monmouthshire was in England or Wales. In one of the local
government reorganisations (1975, I think) the whole county was
renamed Gwent, and Newport and Monmouth are now also Casnewydd and
Trefynwy respectively. This is in spite of the fact that the majority
of the county doesn't speak Welsh. The same has happened in the south
of Pembrokeshire, which hasn't spoken Welsh for getting on for 900
years; Milford Haven and Haverfordwest are now also Aberdaugleddau and
Hwllffordd; the latter is always known as 'arford by anyone who lives
there :-)

With best wishes,

Peter.
