Why isn't this "Ga i erdded", like gofyn => "Ga i ofyn"?

It is... as long as you remember that gerdded is a mutated form already:

  • cerdded - to walk, walking
  • gofyn - to ask, asking

So:

  • Ga i gerdded? - May I walk? (soft mutation of c -> g)
  • Ga i ofyn? - May I ask? (soft mutation of g -> -)
