Wait, so what’s the difference between gyda fe and gynno fo, and why does the pronoun come second here?

March 20, 2016


It's more or less a N/S thing;

  • N: Mae gynno fo / ganddo fo something
  • S: Mae something 'da fe / gyda fe

As to why they use not only a different word but also place it in a different place in the sentence, no idea.

The possessive in the Celtic languages is passive : "there is fair hair with him" rather than "he has fair hair".
