Level 1 1 lesson 16

Hi, I’m on lesson 16 and I’m a bit stuck!
First, on the notes it says wnes I fwynhau … but I can hear wnes I (something like ai) fwynhau. I think the extra bit means ‘it’, how do I spell it?
is ‘do’ a way of saying yes?
Also, I’ve heard something about short and long verbs, does it start here? we’ve gone from ‘rhywun ddudodd o wrthaf fi’ to something like ’ o wnaeth ddeud wrthaf fi’ - for ‘someone who told me’ - how do I know which one to use?
Diolch yn fawr iawn.
oh yes one more thing, how do I pronounce the ‘au’ at the end of Blaenau ffestiniog? -
Diolch eto!

That’s very good hearing! You’re picking up on ‘wnes i ei fwynhau’ - I enjoyed it - which is a very good sign… :thumbsup:

Yes - usually in the past, but don’t worry about it, you’ll start to use it instinctively when you’ve heard it modelled often enough… :slight_smile:

Yes again (you’re really nailing this!) - ddudodd is short form, wnaeth ddeud is long form - and it doesn’t matter which one you use… :slight_smile:

According to purists, it’s Blaen-eye… according to the people who live there, it’s Blaen-a. :slight_smile:
