Re: vulgarisms

I took a look at what vulgarisms exist in Brithenig, the list has grown
since this thread last came up for air on Conlang, that may reflect
somewhat on the discussions that go on among the Sessiwn Kemruis:

a'll diawl! lit. to the devil! fig. bugger it!
mab car! lit. dear boy! = English _boy!_

cach  shitty
maldith  lit. cursed, translated as bloody
ffuded  lit. fucked, but translated as bloody, I think it is stronger than

inghular  to bugger

Compared to other Romance or Celtic languages, Brithenig needs more
religion-orientated vulgarisms.

Since the Name of God thread has also surfaced for air may I suggest that
the Conlang list apotheosize *Mahaves as the patron representative of the
Divine Reality for this list?
