# You pronounce it
as it's spelt, so it's :

Dunarllstr ap Pedr y Tal o Dy Hwnt I'r Clawdd

# With difficulty.
It's Dun-ARCLH-str ap PE-tr i TAL o DE HOONT ear CLAWTH.

Or thereabouts. in the first bit, ARCLH, the CLH bit is made by the phlegm in the back of your throat - try putting your tongue in the position to sound the letter L, then widen it a bit to touch your side teeth. The letter R in Welsh is always rolled on the tongue, whilst HOONT is pronounced quickly. More a sort of HONT sound, but with the W pronounced as a chimp-like noise. DD in Welsh is like the English TH, but softer.
