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!!

Just a dialect thing.


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.


Could you use "Hogyn yw o" or would this stand for is he a boy?


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.
