"How have you gone?"
Translation:Sut dych chi wedi mynd?
This is a bit of an awkward sentence. I haven't really heard it spoken in Welsh, and certainly not in English.
This is a simple, if a little clumsy, way of asking how someone traveled to a place.
eg 'Sut dych chi wedi mynd i'r ysgol? = How have you gone to the school.
An answer could be:-
Dw i wedi mynd mewn car = I have gone in a car.
It's a useful construction to use at the beginning of learning Welsh since it follows the same basic pattern as the present tense.
Of course a more normal sentence would be:-
How did you go to the school, which would be 'sut aethoch chi i'r ysgol?'
The short past tense comes up later in the course.
No, I understand what it means, it just isn't regularly used, in my experience.
But thanks for the explanation as to why it's featured on the course! I was just confused - I tend to hear 'teithio' used, as in 'sut teithiodd ti'. I don't know if that's grammatically correct, that's just the way I hear / speak it.
Mae dweud "Sut teithiodd ti?" yn anghywir; "Sut deithiodd e/o/hi?" neu "Sut deithiaist ti / deithioch chi?" sy'n gywir.
Pan rwy'n siarad Cymraeg gyda ffrindiau, rydyn ni'n siarad yn achlysurol iawn, a dydw i ddim yn cael llawer o gwersi Cymraeg yn yr ysgol mwyach. A yw'n llafar neu ysgrifenedig, rwy'n tuennu anghofio llawer. Felly, mae'n braf cael gwybodaeth am gramadeg Cymraeg.
Mae'n flin gen i!
