For which question words would the first letter of "gaethoch" be dropped?


gaethoch is a mutated form of caethoch - the g- would not be dropped because you can't mutate a word twice over.

To be strictly correct, there should in any case be no mutation after pryd?, ble/lle?, pam?, sut? (how?):

  • Pryd caethoch chi'ch geni
  • Pryd cest ti dy eni?
  • Sut roedd y cyfarfod?
  • Pam rwyt ti wedi symud i Bont-y-pŵl?

But in the informal registers of the language, people very often do mutate after pryd in particular. In this course, the mutated forms after pryd...? are accepted.


In the hints it has / gest as a suggestion. (You have a typo. Pryd cest ti dy eni?)


As you know, the pop-up hints are not context sensitive. In some contexts, gest ti would be correct.
