Fitheach wrote:I'm writing an article on mistletoe, and in the New Welsh Dictionary by Christopher Davies, it says:
"Uchelwydd. Planhigyn yn tyfu ar goed eraill ac iddo aeron gwyn.”
Could anybody please give me a translation?
Hello Fitheach, (lovely name-what does it mean?),
Here I put literal translations first so you get an idea of what words mean what and how they're put together and then the english translation for you:
Planhigyn yn tyfu=plant which grows
ar goed eraill=on trees others
ac iddo aeron gwyn=and with it berries white
So the sentence translates as "Mistletoe.A plant which grows on other trees and has white berries".
Or if you want to be more poetical as in the Welsh version:
"Mistletoe.A plant which grows on other trees and with it berries white".
(Lol-not sure if you're a learner or not,but thought I'd explain in depth for you anyway!)
Hope this helps you out!
