Both mae and ydy/yw are parts of the conjugation of the present tense of bod (being, to be).
- mae is used to start simple statements - Mae hi'n bwrw glaw, for example - and including those, like one above, describing the existence of things - 'there is...' - Mae arth yn yr ardd.
- ydy/yw is used in emphatic statements where the sentence starts with a noun or an adjective is being emphasised - Athro ydy e, for example.
