Welsh language & adopting digraphs

For a beautiful language, Welsh is ugly.

The ugliness stems from the eight digraphs within the alphabet: ch, dd, ff, ng, ll, ph, rh, and th.

These make for confusing pronunciation and chaotic, over-long words.

My project seeks to breathe new life into the Welsh language by adopting a unique solution for the letters currently represented by digraphs.
