Pallu is quite a common word for 'methu' which i thought was more typical of north Wales. I'm sure pallu is Southern Welsh but i don't know if its restricted geographically there with some areas using ffilu/ffaelu, others pallu and others using both forms.
Wi'n pallu dod heno - i can't come tonight
wi'n pallu byta cabij - ma'n ela fi'n dost - i can't eat cabbge, it makes me sick
I've just thought and you would say ffilu arholiad (to fail an exam) - you can't say pallu there, so i guess where palllu is used, you also get ffilu or perhaps methu although that still strikes me as north walian..

Whitland is a town almost bordering on Pembrokeshire. Do you think maybe they would have been influenced by Pembrokeshire welsh Then again, I think it's more north Pembrokeshire that speaks different from what I've read.
