"He is Dewi Lingo."
Translation:Dewi Lingo yw e.
It said 2 answers are correct: Dewi Lingo ydy e., Dewi Lingo ydy o Please can someone explain the difference between 'e' and 'o. Thank you,
Just a dialect difference - you will probably hear o more in the north, e more in the south. There's no difference in meaning.
Thanks - I'm from the north, and I vaguely remember back in school there were differences between north and south. It can get a little confusing...
Because you need an "'n" after the "e" and even then it's not common to use that construction to say something like this, we always used the emphatic.
Thank you, I haven't even seen the emphatic yet, so this was quite confusing for me. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
I also wrote 'Mae e Dewi Lingo'. Granted I forgot about the 'n'. But shouldn't the course teach the emphatic before expecting learners to use it? Especially as it seems from the previous units that the verb always comes first? How critical is word order in Welsh?
Actually looking back it's wrong tk say "Mae e'n Dewi Lingo" we alwayd use the emphatic for this sort of sentence. Word order is important abd most sentences are Verb-Subject-Object except when we say something/someone is something then we use the emphatic.
