"Gwelais i heddwas."
Translation:I saw a policeman.
What if I wanted to say that it was a policewoman? Is there any specific word for it?
heddwas (heddweision) seems to be gradually becoming more popular, but we also have the widely used:
- plismones (plismonesau) - policewoman (policewomen)
- plismon (plismyn) - policeman (policemen)
- Gwelais i blismon - I saw a policeman
- Gwelais i blismonesau - I saw some policewomen
Ap geiriaduron gives 'Heddferch' which sounds sensible although I've never heard it.
