enough of this slagging off the Welsh or I'll report this thread Errol :-D

this is the country that gave you Tom Jones, Dylan Thomas, Shirley Bassey, Harry Seccombe and many more, so lay off :-S

And "dim" in Welsh means "No"

I spent four days in Wales, had a lovely time.

Except for the barmaid........ who argued with me about the Scotch I ordered.......... "try this one, it's better"........... "No, I want that one"...... and so on and so on......... grrrrrrrr

AnnCardiff as if I would :)

When I lived in Wales I quickly discovered that dim meant no and you could add "io" to virtually anything. I don't think the spelling matters as long as you say...
dim smokio - no smoking
dim parcio - no parking
dim entrio - no entry
big dim noio - big no no
s dim - snow
dim sum - a Chinese snack
dim dim sumio - no Chinese snacks
dim ssss - nose
In fact, I reckon I could give Welsh lessons as I am so fluent.

I remember seeing this a few years ago but seems to have repeated in being shown around the web at the moment :-)

I'm from Swansea and sadly know people who work in the call centre including some who are trained teachers and nurses but sadly call centres are the Swansea job scene at the moment . Have to say though there are some right idiots there too including the bodybuilder who thinks he is gods gift to women , he is currently a promo topless butler for a bar in town and the only attention from the ladies is of laughter . :-D

If you do,Errol,don't go on a web translator,they are rubbish....just ask Tecwyn, or one of the other Welsh speakers on here ..and beware that some words are different in North and South Wales!....Diolch!

I shall bear that in mind - thank you for the advice.
Is there a North/South phrasebook?
