WHAT DOES WELSHWOMEN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Welshwomen

Welsh people

Welsh people are an ethnic group native to, or otherwise associated with, Wales and the Welsh language. The language was historically spoken throughout Wales, with its direct ancestor Old British once spoken throughout most of the British mainland. While Welsh remains the predominant language in parts of the country, English is the predominant language in most parts of Wales. The names "Wales" and "Welsh" are traced to the Proto-Germanic word "Walhaz" meaning "foreigner", "stranger", "Roman", "Romance-speaker", or "Celtic-speaker" which was used by the ancient Germanic peoples to describe inhabitants of the former Roman Empire, who were largely romanised and spoke Latin or Celtic languages. The same etymological origin is shared by the names of various other Celtic or Latin peoples such as the Wallons and the Vlachs, as well as of the Swiss canton of Valais. John Davies argues that the origin of the "Welsh nation" can be traced to the late 4th and early 5th centuries, following the Roman departure from Britain, although Brythonic Celtic languages seem to have been spoken in Wales far longer.
