At my son’s learner’s group meeting last night, he decided (yet again) to tease my granddaughter by saying “Dydy Izzie ddim yn hoffi pwdin” (Izzie doesn’t like pudding) to which she quickly and indignantly replied “Izzie DOES (the English word) hoffi pwdin!”
This reminded me that in French you have an easy way of contradicting a positive statement using “si” instead of “oui”. For example, if someone says “Tu n’aimes pas les desserts” (You don’t like puddings), you can deny this by saying “Si,.je les adore”, I believe “doch” serves a similar purpose in German (@brigitte ?)
My question is: does Welsh have a similar one word construction without saying something like “on the contrary” or “not at all” or “what are you talking about”?
Think I have heard some things like that on Rownd a Rownd, and I’ve definitely heard contradictions in the 2nd person familiar, i.e. if someone says they have not or do not something, and the other person counters with "Ond wyt!"
