Challenge 16

I feel that I am getting on really well. Thank you very much. However I am having some difficulty in hearing the difference in certain areas between he and she. For example: he told me that he wanted and he told me that she wanted. I believe that it is something to do with ev and et in the phrase but it sounds very similar. Thank you

Hi @martin-powis

Are you doing the northern or southern course?

Thank you. I am doing southern as far as I am aware

Ok so on the southern course, he would be ‘e’ which might be ‘bod e’ or bo’ fe - if the bod meaning ‘that’ is shortened - perhaps that is what you are hearing…and she would be ‘hi’.

So, for example ‘he told me that she wanted’ would be:

Dwedodd e wrtha ’i bo’ hi’n moyn…,

… that he wanted would be

Dwedodd e wrtha ’i bo’ fe’n moyn…

Or…Dwedodd e wrtha ’i bod e’n moyn…

I’m not too sure which is used in this challenge…

Have you noticed that there is a vocab list with examples for each challenge?

…it’s a little red speech bubble with lines in on my iPhone app (if you are using an App)

If you press the little red speech bubble (under the challenge number in the screen shot below) you get the word list shown underneath that…
