"Do we want to drink wine?"

Translation:Ydyn ni eisiau yfed gwin?

So saying "Dyn ni eisiau yfed gwin" would turn the question into a statement, right?


According to this chart, Dyn ni can be used for both a question and a statement:


So, turning the question into a statement would use the same sentence, but the intonation at the end of the sentence would signal whether it was a question or a statement. (Raising the tone at the end of the sentence signals a question.)


Is there a place that explains all the "dych chi" "dw i" ydyn ni" "mae e'n" etc.

Cause I'm having a hell of a time finding it lol. I'm mobile if that has something to do with it.

I know 'eisiau' doesn't need 'yn,' but why don't you need one for 'yfed?'


eisiau does not need to be followed by a preposition.


If you took eisiau out of the sentence then you would have the option of adding 'yn' which would translate as ''Are you drinking wine?" or you could leave it out which would translate as "Do you drink wine?", I think!


This sentence uses ni (we), not chi (you). For chi:

  • Dych chi'n yfed gwin? - Are you drinking wine?; Do you drink wine?
