"My favourite food is vegetarian food."

Translation:Fy hoff fwyd yw bwyd llysieuol.

    Here the adjective hoff comes before the noun fwyd but llysieuol comes after bwyd. Is it fy that causes this?


    No, it is just that hoff is one of perhaps 20-25 adjectives which can have slightly different meanings if they come before or after the noun - when it means 'favourite', it comes before the noun and so causes a soft mutation.

    Why has this sentence been removed? I don't see anything wrong with it.


    I cannot tell where it came from, so I don't know for certain what the reason might have been, sorry. Possibly because it might be more common to be emphasising bwyd llysieuol here, so that would come first in the sentence:

    • Bwyd llysieuol yw fy hoff fwyd.
