<h3>Pronouncing Welsh Place names</h3>
I have added below various place names used in the three Drake novels <em>Brass In Pocket</em>, <em>Worse Than Dead</em> and <em>Against the Tide</em>. Although Welsh is a phonetic language where every letter is pronounced. The language has no hidden letters or examples where letters are not pronounced so it should straightforward! I know from my feeble attempts to learn French years ago that it is never that simple to learn another language. There are lots of ‘LL’ and ‘TH’ in Welsh place names so I hope the voice recordings below will help you read the books and hear the place names at the same time.
