Why do you need "y" between "Biau" and "rhein"?

(Again, a sentence that has been deleted from the course database but which is very slow in vanishing from the system.)

  • y rheini - those
  • y rhain - these

Both words need the y/'r in front of them. They are contractions of, respectively, y rhai hynny, y rhai hyn. Both have some minor variants.
