Cofiwch Dryweryn*

* Remember Tryweryn

Welsh Wales

Standard Phrase USED Frequently BY Almost Everyone

'Cofiwch Dryweryn' is the phrase used to bring attention to the drowning of the Welsh town Capel Celyn in 1965. The act of the town being turned into a water reservoir for the English city of Liverpool forms a large part of the animosity between the two countries.

Note: The 'T' of Tryweryn mutates to a 'D' (as seen in the submission) due to the soft mutation that comes with an imperative noun.

"Yn y dyfodol, mae'r Saesneg wedi achosi llawer o gur am Gymru." "Dw i'n cytuno gyda ti - cofiwch Dryweryn!"

"In the past, the English have caused a lot of pain for Wales." "I agree with you - remember Tryweryn!"
