"Have you written a Saint Dwynwen's card?"

Translation:Dych chi wedi ysgrifennu cerdyn Santes Dwynwen?

I wrote "sgwenni" as I understood it to be a N Wales variant...not accepted. Have I got that wrong?


Yes, "sgwennu" (from "ysgrifennu") is used in North Wales. One thing to note about Welsh is the amount of variation in vocabulary around Wales (especially for such a small country). As a result, Duo may not have included all variations possible. All we can do is click the "Accept my answer" option and see if they'll add it.


Why is it Dewi Sant but Santes Dwynwen? Is it because of the Gender ?
