There was a circumflex on the o in cot this time, but previously there has not been one Is this a mistake, or is it optional?

A variation - either is fine.

Why is it 1 word in English but 2 in welsh?

The vocabulary and grammar of Welsh and English are very different. Words do not necessarily translate one-for one. For example:

  • neithiwr - yesterday evening
  • nes ymlaen - later
  • echnos - the night before last
