What is Cysgliad?
Cysgliad is a software package for your PC. The package includes two main programs:
Cysill is a program that identifies and corrects language errors in your Welsh-language documents.
It can identify mistyping, misspelling and grammatical errors, including incorrect mutation. In addition to suggesting corrections when needed, the program explains the nature of grammar mistakes when encountered so as to help you avoid making the same mistake in the future
Cysill also includes a mouseover dictionary, which shows the translation of words when hovered over.
Cysill also includes a thesaurus which helps you find different words with similar meanings – a perfect way to improve your vocabulary!
