Y gair dros/The word dros

I’m taking a break from the advanced material and redoing level 3 south. In lesson 4 we say Mae llawer resume dros prynu wal. There are many reasons to buy a wall.I would say Mae llawer resume i prynu wal.
I always understood dros to mean over, or is this an alternative way to use the word.

yes, dros can mean ‘over’ and can also mean ‘for’. When it’s used for ‘for’ it is in the sense of “in favour of”, which is why it’s used here.


Many thanks
