Is 'mae e and mae o' just a dialect thing or is there meaning behind it. You've answered a lot of my questions as well so diolch yn fawr iawn!!

See the course notes for the section 'Dialects 1'. We recommend reading the notes for each new section as you start it.

Surely "He is a boy." is the same as "He`s a boy."

Yes, and both are accepted here.

I noticed that your apostrophe looks odd, more like an grave accent on its own. It may be that Duo does not recognise it.

I'm having trouble differentiating between hogan and hogyn. Feedback is treating this as a simple spelling error, rather than catching when I use the wrong word.
