"Dw i wedi blino."
Translation:I am tired.
Dw i = i am, dw i'n = dw i yn, where yn is an untranslatable particle needed to introduce a verb.
When 'dw' and 'i' are next to eachother, is it sort of pronounced as one word?
Could we say "Dw i blino" and leave out the "Wedi"? Or isn't that allowed?
No, that would not work. See the course notes for explanations and examples of this pattern with wedi.
There are several ways to find them - at the top of this page, click on 'Topic: Welsh', then on 'Popular', and then look for the sticky discussion 'Course hints and tips'.
hello there, any idea why sometimes I can use the term I'm and other times it says this is incorrect and I am is the correct answer as Dw I is used in both examples. Do they not mean the same thing? cheers.
Both I'm and I am should be accepted. Just report the exercises where they aren't.
Cheers for your help, I thought I was going nuts as it's happened a few times. I'll report from now on.
Tired and sleepy isn't the same thing, I'd say. Sleepy is about to nod off. You can be tired, but at the same time not sleepy at all.
If someone asks you to do something, but you feel too tired to do it right now, how would you say "I'm too tired to do it right now."?
