"Senedd is one of those words. A word from Wales; a word rooted in the Welsh Language ; a word That is bilingual, in your application.

"What is the better application for such an inclusive word as the official name of our national-democratic and representative institution. "

Sian Gwenllian , Plaid AM for Arfon, highlighted common Welsh words already far in Welsh, English, say: "Let's cwtch up today, let's not twp, together, let's say, there is known a Parliament for Wales, as the Senedd . "
