Mae = Is , this sentence literally means 'Is the monkey wanting bread' which would be transposed to the English word order as 'The Monkey is wanting bread' which then gets shortened in English to 'The Monkey wants bread'

Welsh is Verb-Subject-Object as opposed to the Subject-Verb-Object of English.
