can ble also be place, or is that just 'where'

ble - a shortened form of ba le ('(in) which place' = 'where?' or '...where...')

lle - 'a place', but also used in some dialects instead of ble? for 'where?' and very widely used as '...where...'.

  • Ble (Lle) maen nhw? - Where are they?
  • Y dref lle/ble maen nhw'n byw - The town where they live.
  • I ble maen nhw'n mynd? - Where are they going to? (I le... does not seem to be used for this, but somebody may know of an example...)

ble is not used for 'a place'.
