"He's a man."
Translation:Dyn yw e.
I know the point of this sentence is to practise different dialect forms of the verb bod, but can't we also accept 'Dyn mae e,' too?
There are two correct ways of saying this:-
Dyn yw e/Dyn ydy o = 'He is a MAN' (Man is he) = the emphatic sentence, with different intonation it can become a question too.
Mae e'n ddyn/Mae o'n ddyn = 'He is a man' = the non emphatic sentence
I cannot find this phrase in the current version of the course, so I cannot comment on its purpose.
The expected translations would be variations of 'Dyn ydy/yw e/o'. As it is an emphatic pattern starting with a noun, the form of the verb has to be ydy/yw.
mae would be used at the start of an unemphatic sentence, or following a question word such as pryd/ble/sut/pam?
