"The man is going."
Translation:Mae'r dyn yn mynd.
I think I am missing something, but I genuinely do not understand this translation. could anyone explain all the words please, as in why those words are used, waht they mean and why in this order. I'm completely lost (I basically only understand why mynd is used)
Firstly Welsh is a Verb-Subject-Object language. So "Mae" (Is) comes first in this sentence. "'r" is the definite article and is a contraction of "y" which comes after vowels." "Dyn" means "Man". "Yn" is a verbal particle which you'll find a good explanation about on the Welsh discussion website. And finally the verb-noun mynd comes at the end of the sentence as the object.
No not for verb-nouns which is what "mynd" is. It causes a weak soft mutation on adjectives and nouns when it is a verbal particle and a nasal mutation on place names/places when it means "in".
