As the list grows it may be worth categorizing these by useful situation, otherwise we may end up with a small dictionary.

Yes, a dictionary is not where we need to go. Long lists of vocabulary are not in the spirit of SSiW and rather unhelpful. A short list of notable words is probably ok.
I wondered about combining this list with the word pairs page in some way to try and create a better learning aid.
By the way, sothach got listed incorrectly as an adjective - it's a noun really.

Some of these I recognize in some form from word pairs in the lessons, like 'anobeithio yn llawer" and "gweithy yn uchel" (sp?) (despair entirely, shout loudly) so we could probably find/remember/create pairs (difficult decision, unfortunate move [chess], extraordinary experience, etc.)
