    Summary

    Author’s note: This is a Yuletide treat for plinge. All of the sentences in italics are sentences that the Duolingo Welsh Course teaches you; some, I’ve met since starting to learn Welsh in October (Dw i’n dysgu Cymraeg!) and others are from the wtfduolingo website. There might also be an Easter egg or two for those using the same textbook as me…

    The prompt was:

    I saw this in the tagset and immediately loved the idea of it. I’ve dabbled with Duolingo in general and this course specifically, and I love all the wacky scenarios that Duolingo gives you to translate. (The site wtfduolingo gives a lot of examples here, and just searching for images for “welsh phrases Duolingo” can get you things like “do you like the tiger in the office?”).

    Basically, take a wild sentence and run with it! If Owen’s nightclub is selling parsnips, how’s business going? Did they expand the business to Antarctica and that’s why Owen is there eating parsnips? Do they others have to confront the dragon that ate Owen? Why is there a tiger in the office, and do the other characters have to try to get it out? Why is the world of Welsh Duolingo so obsessed with parsnips, anyway?
