How would i say "you must not worry"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NoelGoetowski

I would guess "Rhaid i chi beidio â boeni."

Close - Rhaid i chi beidio â phoeni

Does the phoeni here come from a case of 'mixed mutation'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mizinamo

Not mixed, just aspirate mutation after â (p t c > ph th ch).

The same aspirate mutation is found after ei "her" and after a "and", e.g. te a choffi, ei phwrs, gaeth hi ei thorri.

No, no mutation if you leave out the â.

I gave "there is no need to worry" as an answer - how would this be different?

Throwing out an answer although I'm not sure, it might be: 'Does dim rhaid i boeni', since the given answer word-for-word means "There is no need for you to worry."
