'n - Is this just for like or will I be seeing it elsewhere?

I read this in Tips & Notes:

"To say 'I like', we link 'I am' (dw i) with 'liking' ('hoffi') using a small word which does not actually translate into English when it is used like this - 'n (that is, 'apostrophe n'). So, 'I like' is made up of:

dw i + 'n + hoffi, giving us, dw i'n hoffi - 'I like'"

The way I read this is that it is specific to things one likes. is this 'n used in other ways as well?

In the next section you will find yn/'n being used with dw i, etc, to describe other activities, not just 'liking'.

yn has a couple of other uses, too, that are introduced in later parts of the course. It is summarised here.

I think of it as a 'linker' word that is used in certain cases to link things together.
