>As an elaboration, another spelling I've seen for the same instrument is "crwth" which is pronounced like something very similar to the English name for the instrument: "Crowd." In Welsh or old Gaelic, the "th" is a stopped consonent that sounds like something between a "d" and a "t."

The instrument is either plucked or bowed, and held somewhat like a violin.

Now, let's look at the doubled consonent sounds of "dd" and "ll" . . .
