These dialects are not as prominent as they once were, Gwenhwyseg (Y Wenhwyseg) is pretty much extinct from what I hear, although people have started to try and relearn it.

Our mine-laying had taken four hours longer than we had planned and the delay put us in the dilemma either of getting no rest, or of letting the main body march without us. Finally by Shakir’s will we let them go, and fell down under our trees for an hour’s sleep, without which I felt I should collapse utterly. The time was just before daybreak, an hour when the uneasiness of the air affected trees and animals, and made even men-sleepers turn over sighingly. Mohammed, who wanted to see the fight, awoke. To get me up he came over and cried the morning prayer-call in my ear, the raucous voice sounding battle, murder, and sudden death across my dreams.

T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom

Maybe it’s just because I was a practicing Muslim for several years, but this is the funniest possible mental image to me.  T.E.L, sleeping like the dead, when Mohammed sneaks over like a kid on Christmas morning and bellows ALLAAAAAAAHU AKBAR right in his ear.

Thank you SO MUCH for improving that mental image!
