"When did she leave the pub?"

Translation:Pryd gadawodd hi'r dafarn?

Would this translate also as "When did she go from the pub?" Is there a word for leave in Welsh?

It could, but that would sound a bit odd in English.

If you look it up in a dictionary such as Ap Geiriaduron or www.gweiadur.com you find gadael and ymadael รข for 'to leave, leaving'.

Would framing the question using gadael be incorrect?

Pryd gadawodd hi o'r dafarn?

gadael is usual for 'leaving', but it does not need to be followed by o:

  • Pryd gadawodd hi'r dafarn, or
  • Pryd gwnaeth hi adael y dafarn

Both are accepted answers for this sentence.

The real question here is: "is tafarn masculine or feminine?" ;)

Feminine - I have corrected my typo!

(I have heard it as masculine, but that is apparently limited to a part of mid-Glamorgan, so a local variation in a small area.)
