Neither really It's a bit more subtle
The IPA phonetic version looks like this kætəˈloʊniə.
Kind of in between. Not quite the oo as in moon but more than the u in bus.
I dont know about those cities, is it because we have to be more culturally sensitive about our imperial past to countries that we once exploited and we have to show more respect to them in modern times for trade purposes?
Thanks for that but I though Catalunya was in Spain not Greece.
That's phonetics for you.
Useful if you can translate the symbols to sounds but confusing to read.
I should have used the Tube video but that is far too simple
Yes they did and a few still do . George Borrow reported Welsh speaking communities between Newport and Chepstow in the 1830s and some churchyards in that area contain Welsh inscribed graves up until the 1890s. No, It was a Marcher area, neither properly legally England or Wales for centuries, but place names place monmouthshire nearly entirely culturally in Wales.
But I hope everything can be resolved in Catalonia without violence, I fear something bad will happen.
Well he'll probably have to go out and live there, come Brexit.
Having an English mother, he has dual nationality.
He came here to go to an English university and to improve his English (which is now excellent).
Hardly. He has lived here for well over 5 years and in any case has British citizenship.
My view is probably over-coloured by chat with my Catalan neighbour, but his view is (he says) like that of Ghandi - everything will be peaceful, but there will be no more doubt about the outcome than there was about Britain leaving India. When he went out to Barcelona three weeks ago, he said he was prepared to lay down in front of Spanish tanks - and I didn't doubt that.
There seems to be some inconsistencies here
Aw, I don't know - you can be run over very silently.
30 years you said earlier
Spain has dissolved the Catalan govt, and called a snap election
Pm sacks Catalan president and chief of police
administration powers removed and ministers sacked. catalan embassies shut except brussels, catalan reps' offices in Madrid shut down. huge demonstrations in Barcelona - for and against.
Will they have a frictionless border with Spain?
Didn't they take him round a quiet corner to run over him?
not for a while!
