Ar fin?

Helo! I didn’t see this question elsewhere in the search, so apologies if I’ve missed it.
I’m working on course 1 (Northern) lesson 25. While introducing “Rhaid i mi” it is said that the first letter of the next word is softened as with “newydd” and “ar fin”. But I didn’t recall the next word being softened with “ar fin”, so I went back to lesson 24 to give it another listen. Granted, my hearing isn’t great, but I’m just not hearing the next word being softened. Is it time for hearing aids? :flushed:
Diolch yn fawr!

There is no SM after ar fin - no reason for it. So we say, for example, Maen nhw newydd fynd They have just gone, but Maen nhw ar fin mynd They are just about to go

Your hearing is fine :slight_smile:

Oh Thank Heavens - I didn’t want to have to invest in hearing aids just yet!
Diolch, and have a wonderful weekend!!
