An explanation of the the idea of a 'bag for life' in Britain has recently been added to the section notes.

A bag for life is offered by some supermarkets in the UK for a small charge. This can be reused and they will also replace it, free of charge, when necessary, hence the term 'bag for life'. The supermarket will often have a selection of reusable bags for sale. They will not all be bags for life.

    could 'oes tal' also be translated as 'how much'?

    No. Oes...? is asking about the existence of something = 'Is there a...?'; 'Are there...?'

    • Oes tâl? - Is there a charge?
    • Oes teigr yn y lolfa? - Is there a tiger in the lounge?
    • Oes mefus yn y treiffl? - Are there any strawberries in the trifle?
