Why is it wrong to replace "chi" with "ti?"

Assuming you also changed the preposition then nothing. "Beth sy'n bod arnoch chi?" becomes "Beth sy'n bod arnot ti?"

Aha, I suspected it was something like that. Thanks!

aront ti ?

I thought it was arnat ti ?

I'll check, but imagine it will be a dialect difference, I've always used arnot.

Ah, so aront was a typo for arnot.


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

Oh right. Yeah, I'll fix it now.

"Be sy'n bod"? Is that another dialect?

"Be sy'n bod"? Is that another dialect?

be’ is a northern form of beth.

I wondered why be and not beth, when I am only just being taught this context
