What does nhw'n mean? I thought maen = they, and yfed = drink

nhw - they

maen nhw - they are

yfed - drinking/to drink

'n/yn - yn (in this usage) used as a particle to indicate an incomplete action, and not directly translated into English

/ Maen nhw / 'n / yfed/ -> / they are / [in the process of] / drinking / -> they are drinking
