mefusen. It is quite common in Welsh for the normal form of a noun to represent a plural quantity of plants, foods, trees and so on. The singular is then created by adding/changing a sufffix, often -en:
- derw, derwen - oaks, an oak
- coed, coeden - trees/wood, a tree
- tatws, taten - potatoes, potato
- pysgod, pysgodyn - fish, a fish
- madarch, madarchen - mushrooms, mushroom
The very opposite of German / Dutch then! If Welsh wasn't already tricky enough for us!
Tim, likewise in Norwegian (Bokmal) where "en" preceeding a noun make it indefinite "a (something)" and tacked onto the end makes it a definite or specific "the (something)" 9May17
