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
