dan sang - crowded

  • dan sang - crowded

    Tan means 'under' and 'until' in written or literary Welsh. In modern Welsh usage, however, dan ( originally a mutated form of tan ) has come to mean 'under' whilst tan means 'until'. Sang means pressure. So, for 'crowded' we have a compound word which translates, more or less, as 'under pressure'.
