Welsh term or phrase: Cariad
The question is- 'what is the meaning of the welsh word Cariad?'
Maria Clifton
See explanation
Explanation:
"cariad [-au, -on, mf.]
(n.) lover, sweetheart
"cariad [-au, m.]
(n.) love, affection
Cariad is the strongest word for "love". If it is full-blown head-over-heels it is "cariad". If it is charitable, it is "cariad". If it is Biblical (do I mean "agape"?) it is "cariad". If it is a euphemism for sexual intercourse, it is also "cariad"."

Good luck, Maria.
