"Dw i'n hoffi'r hwyaden."
Translation:I like the duck.
"the" looks like:
- 'r when it follows a vowel
- otherwise yr when before a vowel
- otherwise y
So in speech, the 'r is attached to the hoffi but in meaning, it is by itself.
Thank you soooo much! I was trying to figure out the rule that explains when each should be used but I couldn't
This is explained in the notes for the section 'The', together with how to choose the correct one of 'r/yr/y.
We strongly recommend reading the notes!
What do you mean with "the same"? The shape of the word for "the" following it?
That depends only on the shape of the previous word... and since licio ends in a vowel just as hoffi does, "the" will take the shape 'r that it takes after any vowel.
