"Dw i eisiau siocled."

Translation:I want a chocolate.

How polite is this? In English it sounds quite rude and demanding. Is this the prefered way of asking for something politely?


It's similar to English. It can either just be a simple statement, but if you went up to a person at a counter and said "Dw i eisiau siocled" you would be seen as a little rude or blunt. The polite form is "Ga i siocled, plîs/os gwelwch yn dda?". "May I have/ (some) chocolate, please?".


Why is there a difference between the pronunciation of "eisiau" in the full sentence and the tile for the word. Sentence sounds like ey-shai but the tile sounds like isha?
