Some think that it is not possible to lay down rules that would guide astranger in acquiring a grammatical and accurate knowledge of the Welshlanguage. But surely those who have studied the language carefully will feelthat it is possible to gain a perfect understanding of Welsh, its many idiomsand peculiarities nonewithstanding.

This work was undertaken with the aim of faciliating the study of the Welshlanguage, and of lessening the difficulties that have been wholly passed overin silence by preceding grammarians. Hopefully it will surpass itspredecessors and lay the base of a work that could pretend to the accuracy andcompleteness of the Latin and Greek grammars (adapted from the introduction).
