Gargoyle by name, Gargoyle by nature? Who rattled YOUR cage? Gratuitous insults to our literacy, sobriety and language - why? It's the oldest living language in Europe, with a totally coherent grammar and orthography but hey, let's go for the cheap shots. The orthography (sorry, Gargoyle - the SPELLING) is more logical than English. Oh, and you don't need to transcribe a written language, because by definition it's already written down.
The most recent Englishman known to Mudcatters who has achieved a remarkable level in Welsh is our very own Les Barker, by the way.
