31/01/2022    Without a language, without a heart

As announced yesterday, the number of strongholds where Welsh is spoken as a majority language has fallen. Undoubtedly, this should be extremely worrying for those of us who are concerned about the future of the Welsh language, and give a kick up the backside of those who believe there is no cause for concern to get to grips with the problem before things worsen. The truth is - unless decisive action is taken, the language will die as a community language. If we want to prevent that from happening, we need to act now to ensure the future of the language as a living and dynamic language.
