  5. "Maen nhw cynddrwg â'u gilydd…

"Maen nhw cynddrwg â'u gilydd."

Translation:They are as bad as each other.

April 15, 2016



This sounds a little awkward in English. Does it mean they are equally bad?



There is an error in the Welsh, too, which I think has already been reported - with nhw it should be â'i gilydd - there is no form *â'u gilydd

Maybe it's a regional difference. The English sounds perfectly natural to me. To put it in context: children are arguing and then complain to an adult about one another they may be told, "you are as bad as each other" and relating the story to someone else, "they are as bad as each other".
