shouldn't it be sut fydd hi'n fory? Shouldn't there be a soft mutation in the question?

There is no mutation after 'sut'

...if it means 'how?'

  • Sut bydd y tywydd yfory? - What will the weather be like tomorrow? (= How will the weather...?) - no mutation
  • Sut cyrhaeddaist ti Dregaron ddoe? - How did you get to Tregaron yesterday? - no mutation

But there is a mutation if you are using it in the sense of 'what sort of... is xxx' or 'what is xxx like?'?':

  • Sut ddyn ydy Dewi? - What sort of man is Dewi? (soft mutation of dyn)
  • Sut gi yw Fflic? - What sort of dog is Fflic?(ci)
  • Sut ddrama ydy 'Siwan'? - What sort of play is 'Siwan'? (drama)
  • Sut un yw Siân? - What is Siân like? (un - nothing to mutate)

Dim problem - I think that rmcode has probably earned more than a few extra by now!
