This’ll be very useful if I ever have to play charades in Welsh.

Way to confuse the Japanese speakers.

My Welsh-speaking 6-yr-old nephew and I have had this conversation more than a few times. ;)

I think it's a north /south thing maybe?

Ash well done. Have a lingot. Maybe you can buy him a wee toy dragon?

No, it's to do with the kind of sentence.

There are umpteen ways of saying yes/no in Welsh depending on the sentence. This is an "are you" sentence, so you would answer "le" rather than ido, or oes, or ydw or any of the other foms of yes.

Very confusing. But you have to learn which yes/now goes with which kind of verb -sentence.
