Is this an expression used in Welsh, or a direct English translation?

I'm not sure if it did come from English but it's definitely how I would say it should I ever need to use the phrase.

I thought I saw,Gair am gair. Now I see, Gair am air. Are both correct?

No, it should always be "Gair am air" since "Am" causes a soft mutation.

Would someone mind using this phrase in a sentence, as an example?

I want to know, word for word, exactly what he said to her just now.

Would "verbatim" work here?
