|I don't have corgoon. Just one sweet Gwennie.|
"Corgi" is a Welsh word - a compound of cor (“dwarf”) and ci (“dog”). The proper plural form is thus "Corgwn" -
- which would be pronounced something like "corgoon."
"I list this as "trivia" because the word has been so Anglicized that "corgis" is in common usage, and your use of "corgwn" in a conversation will be seen as pompous intellectualism, unless perhaps you engage your audience by also sharing some of the other English words derived from Welsh (penguin?)"

I learned about corgwn from TYWKIWDBI a blogger I follow for his quite interesting and varied posts. He got it from a QI podcast another QI site I will explore.
This is not a commercial for English Muffins....but, I am so sorry I did not buy two of these as they are to die for and when I go back to get some more, they will not be available. It really tastes like apple pie.
