Why is it not "Dw i'n adre/garte"?


gartref is an adverb, so it does not need the yn in front of it to turn it from an adjective into an adverb:

  • cyflym - fast
  • Dw i'n gylfym - I am fast
  • Dw i'n rhedeg yn gyflym - I am running quickly/fast - yn + adjective to make the adverb

  • gartref - at home (adverb)

  • Dw i gartref - I am at home
  • adref - homewards, to home
  • Dw i'n mynd adref - I am going home(wards)
