The english dictionary does not have a welsh e or a for when I want to spell tost or pel (toast or ball) I cannot therefore finish todays lesson, what can I do, I am stuck, I tried to restart lesson but still cannot get past these words.

Various straightforward ways to type accented characters are outlined in the first set of course notes - see https://www.duolingo.com/skill/cy/Greetings-1/tips-and-notes

To find the course notes in general, go to https://forum.duolingo.com/topic/924/hot and see 'Course tips and notes'.

I'm assuming you're on a phone. If you install a Welsh spell checker you should have all the letters you need. You will need to press and hold the a to get the choice of accents.

As an emergency procedure you can copy the correct answer when they give it to you then paste it when the question comes round again.

But it does not normally get upset of you just get an accent wrong anyway. It is a bit erratic though.

I translated it: "I want a toast and honey" and was marked wrong. But shoulnd't it be right, as in welsh there are no indefinite articles and it sounds more naturally?

'a toast' would be unusual in English for a slice of toasted bread.

'a toast' as in, say, drinking to someone's health, is llwncdestun.
