I am confused as to why 'un' surrounds deg.

That is how the modern Welsh numbering system works - see the course notes for the section 'Numbers' for examples.

  • un deg un (literally 'one ten one') - eleven
  • un deg dau - twelve
  • un deg saith - seventeen
  • tri deg pump (three tens five) - thirty-five
