How come chdi nawr is not accepted, whereas chdi rŵan is OK?

Is it because chdi should be used in combination with rŵan only (NW), while ti or chi should be used with nawr (SW) ?

Thanks for any clarification. .

Why wouldn't it be "Ti Nawr" It doesn't specify north or south.

Yes, it can just as correctly be 'ti' or 'chi nawr'. Now edited, thanks for the comment.

"You now" isn't a sentence...

I read in one of the comments that this is a phrase used by mums to state an order to their children. For example, the mum's dressing a child to go to school, then she has to dress their other child so the mum would say "chdi rŵan" to him/her.

Couldn't it be a dad, or just a carer?
