Why is brawd not accepted? It tells me I have a typo in my answer and that it should be mrawd

The notes for this section explain this. There is a table there showing the full set of mutations - soft, nasal and aspirate - which letters they each apply to, and what the changes are.

The possessive fy is followed by a nasal mutation. In this example b- mutates to m-:

  • brawd, fy mrawd - brother, my brother

It needs the "yn" (which in this case is "'n")
