I’m doing lessons 6.1 and 6.2 of the old North course and need to clarify the sounds in some of the words. Ignore my spelling as I haven’t started reading Welsh yet, i’m just using the Ssiw course.
The lessons introduce talking about the future: I will, I won’t, You will/won’t, Will you?
I know the affirmative sentences begin with the letter B… Byddai’n, but i’m not sure about the negative sentences. In one part of the lesson the speaker clarifies that the first word is pronounced with the English ‘v’ - it sounds like Vyddi ddim, but later in the lessons when questions and answers are introduced it’s not clarified and it sounds like they are using the English ‘th’ sound in ‘the’ - i.e. ddyddaf instead of vyddaf.
So, are the negative sentences in these lessons pronounced with a ‘v’ or ‘th’?
