Asked in Wales
Why do people call wales 'Welsh wales'?
This generally means "Welsh-speaking Wales" -- a reference to those areas of the country where the Welsh language is commonly spoken, although sometimes people say "Welsh Wales" when they simply mean those parts of the country which look and feel "very Welsh". It's a translation of the Welsh phrase Cymru Cymraeg. But note that Welsh has two words for "Welsh". Cymraeg means Welsh by language (Welsh-speaking, written in Welsh, etc.). Cymreig means Welsh by nature (Welsh-born or descended, made in Wales, etc.) Thus: -- llyfr Cymraeg : a Welsh book (i.e. a book in Welsh) -- caws Cymreig : Welsh cheese (because cheese cannot speak any language!)
Asked in Internet
Why arent things on the internet in Welsh?
There are many pages that are in Welsh - mainly websites such as the BBC, the NHS, and the Welsh Assembly Government. For Welsh is still considered a minority language, only the main sites such as the ones listed above are in Welsh, for they affect aspects of Welsh speakers' lives. Recently, Facebook now offers the Welsh language, so Welsh speakers have the option to use their Facebook in Welsh.
