Is there a reason we talk about "the colour of his hair" rather than just "his hair"? The Welsh it gave me is literally "The colour of his hair is brown" or "His hair's colour is brown", but it wanted "His hair is brown".

Followup question: Would Mae gwallt brown gyda fe be acceptable? That's how we were taught in school (albeit with gyda fi not gyda fe).

Either would be fine. By putting brown at the front of the Welsh sentence it is just being emphasised, that's all.

The normal, unemphatic sentence in Welsh starts with the verb.

    Both are listed as best translations, the one the system asks you is purely random.
