The german pronunciation would be Uralte, which is closer to the welsh way of saying "w" with consonant afterwards.

I’ve felt a lot of times when I encountered Welsh or Irish celtic languages in the historyvideos I’ve watched that I could imagine an ‘old dutch’ root. Though I’ve heard they have Iberian influence, or even semitic, main proof for the latter was because of their grammar being different from mainland , like VOS, VSO.
