  5. "Beth fydd Megan yn hoffi?"

"Beth fydd Megan yn hoffi?"

Translation:What will Megan like?

May 30, 2016



Is this synonymous with "What would Megan like?", e.g., if you were planning a family dinner or making a supposition?


No, that 'would' would need a conditional tense:

  • Beth hoffai Megan?
  • Beth basai/byddai Megan yn (ei) hoffi?

    I would have thought that would and will both express the idea of wondering what Megan is most likely to want.


    As in English, Welsh uses different patterns for 'will' and 'would' - they are different tenses in Welsh, and convey different meanings just as in English.
