There were problems with somebody abusing my account (buying junk, changing addresses) and it happened a couple times even after a password and account name change. I had the bank up the security so every time I talk to them on the phone I must give them a master password before they will make any changes. Since then, they have never once asked for that password while talking on the phone.
LLAN - FAIR - PWLL - GWYN - GYLL - GO - GER - YCH - WYRN - DROB - WLL - LLAN - TY - SILIO - GO - GO - GOCH
LLAN - To start off with, pronounce this section as you would do the Scottish word "clan".
Lie your tongue flat in your mouth so that the tip is firmly touching the bridge behind your front teeth. Keeping the tip of your tongue in place, try and touch your back teeth with the sides of your tongue - now breathe out forcing the air to run strongly over the back of your tongue. This will cause a vibrating noise near your back teeth. Again, keeping the tongue in position, gently change the shape of your tongue until the sound becomes more controlled. This is the "ll" sound you are looking for.
FAIR - Simply pronounce this section as you would the english word "fire", (not like you would expect to pronounce the word "fair" in english!) and change the "f" for a "v".
PWLL - Now you have been practising your "ll" sound this will be a little easier to explain. The "pw" section is pronounced like the "pu" in the english word "put". Now add the "ll" on the end as described above.
GWYN - You may have heard the Welsh name "Gwyn", well this is pronounced in exactly the same way. Just say the english word "win" and put a "g" in front of it. (pronounce the "g" as you would in the word "gone").
GYLL - This is a bit more tricky. First say the english word "gil" (as associated with fish!"). Then change the "l" (as in "let") to "ll" as explained above.
GO - Looks easy doesn't it - it is! Pronounce it as you would the "go" in "gone"
GER - Simply say the word "care" but change the "c" for a "g".
YCH - Like the pronunciation of "ll", this is another tricky section to explain. Think of something you don't like and say "yuck". Now take the "y" from the beginning to leave "uck". Now change the "ck" to "ch" as pronounced in the Scottish word "loch".
WYRN - This looks more complicated than it is. Just say the english word "win".
DROB - First say the english word "draw" and then add a "b" on the end. Easy.
WLL - You've learnt this already. It's pronounced the same as "pwll" above but without the "p".
LLAN - Again, this is exactly the same as the "llan" at the beginning of this section.
TY - Simply pronounce this section as you would the "t" in "twig".
SILIO - Just say "silly - o". The "o" is pronounced as in "cot".
GO - As above.
GO - As above.
GOCH - We're almost there. Simply say "go" as above, put the "ch" after it and that's it!
I admit I cheated - google "pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" and you will find this text here[^]
I just took out the references to a sound file.
Real men don't use instructions. They are only the manufacturers opinion on how to put the thing together.
Well in the country that I'm in, tough choice between the classic mature cheddar or red leicester.
In my country of origin, they don't really make cheese.
My fave cheese though is a toss up between roquefort or camembert.
