  5. "The monkey wants some bread."

"The monkey wants some bread."

Translation:Mae'r mwnci eisiau bara.

February 2, 2016



How do you know it's 'some' when there isn't a word used for it here? Why can't it be just wants bread? It's very confusing


It shouldn't be included in the translation.


What's the difference between Mae'r mwnci and Y mwnci? When would you use which one?


Well "Mae'r mwnci" means "The monkey is" whereas "y mwnci" means "The monkey" though if you're refering to the different forms of "The", "Y" comes between two consonants. "'R" comes after a vowel, and "yr" comes after a consonant, but before a vowel (and "H").
