Y Fro Gymraeg

Y Fro Gymraeg (literally 'The Welsh Language Area', pronounced) is a name often used to refer to the linguistic area in Wales where the Welsh language is used by the majority or a large part of the population; it is the heartland of the Welsh language and comparable in that respect to the Gàidhealtachd of Scotland and Gaeltacht of Ireland.
