What is the difference between ydw and cei?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EinarSig

I think ydw is like 'Yes, I am' and cei is like 'Yes, you may'.

What is the difference between 'ofyn' and 'gofyn'?

gofyn is the normal form, but after the phrase "Ga i" the word "gofyn" gets a soft mutation and becomes "ofyn". you can read about soft mutations in the grammar section of this lesson. ^_^

Thank you! I forgot the 'g' often vanished in the soft mutation.

I understand the literal translation I do I want to ask a question. I wouldn't ever put "I do" before "I want to ask a question"

It's not really like "I do," it just simply means "yes," in response to that kind of question - it just sounds like "I do".

Agree, i think of the ydw as yes

Ydw should be translated here as Yes. In English no one would ever say i do i do. Never. I was looking for yes in the answers proposed.
