Why does 'rhy' come before 'oer' but 'iawn' come after 'stormus'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shwmae

They're just different. Rhy comes before an adjective (and causes a soft mutation) whereas iawn comes after e.g. rhy wyntog "too windy", gwyntog iawn "very windy", rhy gymylog "too cloudy", cymylog iawn "very cloudy".

Is there a different construction used for "she was too cold this morning"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shwmae

No, it's the same.

Why does "rhy" not mutate after "Mae hi'n"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EllisVaughan

bacause "Rh" and Ll don't mutate after "yn" or "y".

Does the 'ma just indicate 'here'

Does the 'ma just indicate 'here'

In combination with the y, it indicates "this".

They both do not say " rhy " properly? Played it loads of times. Only thing i got was "tri" which is totally wrong. This is unfair, people saying the WRONG words. How can you learn?
