"Mae eisiau lle parcio mawr arnon ni - mae e'n rhy fach yma!"

Translation:We need a big parking space - it's too small here!

Does "mae eisiau" translate to "we need"?


I think it is simply "there is need".

  • mae - there is
  • eisiau - need
  • lle - place
  • parcio - to park, parking
  • mawr - big
  • arnon ni - "on us" (from ar "on")

"There is need of a big parking space on us" -- "We need a big parking space".

So the "we" bit of the "we need" is expressed by the need being "on us".
