Why do we need the preface y before the town? I wouldn't say dw i'n byw yn y Cwmbran..

Some names of towns and countries have the article y, others don't. There seems to be no pattern to it, so it is a matter if just learning them. Hrre are some:

  • y Swistir, yr Alban, yr Almaen, yr Eidal, yr Aifft, yr Ariannin, Gwlad y IĆ¢, Gwlad y Basg
  • y Bermo, y Rhyl, y Bontfaen, y Drenewydd, y Fenni, y Bala
