welsh

Second definition. If this can be verified it almost certainly needs a {{slang}} context label. Thryduulf 00:05, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

I see that this has been deleted as a "misspelling" of welch. It does not appear to have gone through WT:RFD, nor has it completed RFV for the second regional sense regarding breakfast (however likely it may be to fail.) Therefore, I am restoring it. While this RFV appears to be originally requested only for the breakfast sense, the deletion indicates that we should perhaps do a full RFV for the entry. --Jeffqyzt 17:28, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

Needs etymology and early examples of use. 24.29.228.33 07:22, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Sometimes considered offensive?[edit]

I don't know how serious or idiosyncratic it is, but [1].--Prosfilaes (talk) 14:12, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Only as offensive as renege, default, cheat, break a promise. DCDuring TALK 15:49, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
You didn't look at the link; this is about the fact that it is the word Welsh (of the people of Wales), and that there is etymological connection (at least according to us.)--Prosfilaes (talk) 19:48, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Is bad pejorative? DCDuring TALK 15:50, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
I had looked at the article, but not the comment. Does anything at welsh at OneLook Dictionary Search provide such a label? DCDuring TALK 20:17, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
Most of them simply say the etymology is unknown. Macmillan says that many people consider it offensive, but doesn't say why. [2] says that it's possibly etymologically connected to Welsh and says it's sometimes offensive, but doesn't connect the two. Merriam-Webster says probably from Welsh and that it's sometimes offensive. It's not very strong, but we could say that some consider it offensive as a derivation from Welsh.--Prosfilaes (talk) 04:32, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
Then, good catch. We should include something. DCDuring TALK 05:00, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
