Welsh[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Welsh chwetyl, from Proto-Brythonic *hwedl, from Primitive Irish *skʷetlan (compare Old Irish scél), from Proto-Celtic *skʷetlom. If the Proto-Celtic word had descended directly into Welsh it would have become *ysbedl rather than chwedl.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

chwedl f (plural chwedlau, not mutable)

  1. story, tale, anecdote, legend
