Shouldnt this be "Dych chi'n mynd mewn car?"

Putting mewn car at the front of the sentence is how to emphasise it. It is much more common to do that in Welsh than in English

  • Mewn car est ti yno, neu ar y trĂȘn? Did you go there by car, or on the train?
  • *Gyda'r nos cyrhaeddest ti, 'te? You arrived in the evening, then?

OK but why mark it wrong? Is it actually wrong or just a matter of emphasis? Diolch
