I agree with ellis vaughn poeth a chynnes

Very odd Is "dwym" a dialect word? It isn't in either of my dictionaries and I have only come across "poeth" for hot up to now.

It's definitely dialect to some degree because I would use "Poeth" for hot and "Cynnes" for warm.

Yes, 'hot' is usually poeth rather than twym/cynnes.

Gweiadur.com explains twym as "sy'n fwy poeth na chynnes"!

twym - warm, hot

Thanks ibischris. Daft of me to forget it was mutated. Even in its proper form though t's not in Y Geiriadur Mawr although it is in my learners' dictionary but described as South usage which would explain why I had not heard of it before.

Thanks Ellis. Yes those are the words I was taught up here.

I got a picture question (no forum link) that required me to translate "it's hot" as "mae'n dwym" and refused to accept "mae hi'n dwym". Can someone explain?

That answer should have been accepted. Duo has just amended the allowable answers and it should now work, although it make take a little while for the change to appear on the system.

I'm still getting this problem... For the picture question it always tells me I'm wrong for typing "mae hi'n dwym".
