"Ydy hi'n gallu nofio gyda fi" The "mae" isn't necessary before "hi'n"?

The form of the verb that comes before hi here depends on what you are saying or asking:

  • When you are asking a question of fact - Ydy...?
  • When you are asking a question of existence - Oes...?
  • When you are making a statement of fact or existence- Mae...

Examples:

  • Ydy hi'n gallu nofio gyda ni? - Can she swim with us? (question of fact - does she have the ability or not?)
  • Oes teigr yn y gegin? - Is there a tiger in the kitchen? (question of existence of the tiger)
  • Mae hi'n gallu nofio gyda ni - She can swim with us. (statement of fact)
  • Mae teigr yn y gegin - There is a tiger in the kitchen. (statement of existence)
