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?
