"Would you not prefer to swim?"

Translation:Fasai hi ddim yn well gyda chi nofio?

May 18, 2016



Would north Welsh use "efo" here instead of "gyda"? I was marked wrong.


gynnoch chi would certainly work. Not sure about efo in this context.


This puzzled me, surely fasai hi is she ... Wouldn't you be ti or chi?


The 'you' in this construction is the chi. hi here means 'it':

  • Fasai hi ddim...? - Wouldn't it be...?

Literally, fasai hi ddim yn well gyda chi...? would translate as '*wouldn't it be better with you....?', but the construction actually translates into English as 'wouldn't you prefer...?
