[2019-07-21] Welsh

This reminds me of a theory my American friend Jim had about Welsh - that the all the new words William the Conqueror brought over led to a shortage of vowels, so the English stole them from the Welsh.

Hence the Anglo-Welsh wars.

I thought it a bit fanciful, but Jim may have been onto something after all. :)
