Here are the translations for the words for the various meals of the day. Note that cinio appears twice:

  • brecwast - breakfast
  • cinio - lunch (midday meal)
  • te - tea
  • cinio - dinner (midday or evening meal)
  • swper - supper

Two different words:

  • bwyta - eating
  • cael - having

how would i differentiate between eat and eating? basically, between what i'm doing right now and what i do in general.

In Welsh though they translate both you eating now and you eating generally with "Dw i'n bwyta". Of course to be specific you could say "Dw i'n bwyta nawr" (I am eating) and "Fel rheol dw i'n bwyta" (I eat).
