i thought when using superlatives and comparatives you put the noun at the end? i could be making this up but i thought that was a correction from earlier lessons.

Superlatives always use this pattern and it's the same pattern for all emphatic sentences.

eg:-

Sioned yw hi = She's Sioned

Athrawes yw Sioned = Sioned is a teacher

Siberia yw'r oeraf = Siberia is the coldest

The word order for the comparative is the same as standard sentences

Mae Siberia yn oer = Siberia is cold

Mae Siberia yn oerach na Ffrainc = Siberia is colder than France
