"Dych chi'n mynd i chwarae sboncen yfory?"

Translation:Are you going to play squash tomorrow?

In Welsh can you use "mynd" to refer to future action in any sentence or only when (as here) the sense of physical going is implied?


You can use it whenever you use "I am going to" in English, so no there's no need for movement, e.g. "Dw i'n mynd i fwyta afal yfory" is "I'm going to eat an apple tomorrow". Of course it depends on the type of future you want, you'd never use "Dw i'n mynd" for "I will".


Btw, check the course notes if you haven't already. I find them to be very helpful :)


is sboncen also squash the vegetable (fruit?) (which it sounds like, i.e., "pumpkin") or just the game?


Just the game I believe, Pumpkin is Pwmpen.

Hefyd mae DWI yn un gai.

Sometimes the voice is speaking to fast for me to understand what's being said. Also DWI is one word.


The Way I Understand It, Dw I Is One Word, But Can Be Spelled (As It's Often Pronounced) As Dwi, A Compound Word.


Sponcen, can be used for the drink squash. It depends on the content an the subject.


sboncen is the game of squash, not the drink (diod ffrwythau) or the vegetable (pwmpen).
