  5. "Mae'n well i fi fwydo'r ci."

"Mae'n well i fi fwydo'r ci."

Translation:I had better feed the dog.

April 10, 2017



Is it possible for this sentence to mean 'I prefer to feed the dog'? If not, how would you say that?


See the notes for the section 'Prefer':

  • Mae'n well gen i/gyda fi.... - I prefer ...
  • Mae'n well i fi... - I had better...


I recommend that you re-read the tips and notes for the "Prefer" skill ( https://www.duolingo.com/skill/cy/Prefer ) -- it shows the difference between the "I had better" and "I prefer" constructions.


Curiously, this seems to be the one sentence practising this construction that I got in the whole skill; the sole exception being for an incorrect answer in a multiple-choice version of this sentence where it said Mae'n well i fi fwydo'r gath.
