Can this also mean ‘she was hotter yesterday’?

Yes, that is perfectly correct and is already one of the alternative translations.

Are there different words for 'warm' and 'hot' in Welsh?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ibisc

Generally, although it can vary:

  • poeth - hot
  • twym, cynnes - warm
  • claear, llugoer - tepid, lukewarm

It was warmer yesterday was not accepted, yet this would be the more normal construction in English. Could this be added please?
