Mutation[edit]

Welsh mutation
radical soft nasal aspirate
Birmingham Firmingham Mirmingham unchanged
Note: Some of these forms may be hypothetical. Not every
possible mutated form of every word actually occurs.

Usage notes[edit]

Non-Welsh placenames usually resist mutation in Welsh; thus, o Birmingham (from Birmingham) and yn Birmingham (in Birmingham), rather than o Firmingham and ym Mirmingham. The mutated forms are only occasionally encountered and are considered nonstandard.
