Is it a mutation that made 'gwyn' go to 'wen' or are they two different words for white? :)

gwyn is white, and gwen is a feminine form of white which is often, but not always, used. The section notes have just been updated to explain this. Adjectives, including colours, always mutate after feminine nouns:

  • y tŷ gwyn, y gegin wyn, y gegin wen - the white house, the white kitchen, the white kitchen (specific feminine form)
