Two image exercises in the "Family1" unit

I just strengthened the "Family1" unit and want to comment on two exercises.

The first gave the prompt "pen" and expected "beiro" -- could this be changed to prompt "ballpoint pen", please? Or was it really expecting "ysgrifbin"? (I answered "pen" because I thought that word was used in Welsh as well and was corrected to "beiro".)

The second is "cake" and I answered "teisan" which I had learned in another course. That was corrected to "deisen". On the next try, I tried "teisen" which was considered a typo for "deisen".

As far as I know now, "teisen" is the word - it's feminine, so "un deisen, y deisen" but on its own should be "teisen" and not "deisen".

(And I suppose the other course was teaching a North Walian pronunciation of the word, which should perhaps not be reflected in spelling. I've notified them about it.)

The answers to both of those have now been corrected:

  • A cake - cacen, teisen - answers corrected to show those with no mutations
  • A pen/biro - beiro, ysgrifbin, pin, pìn, pen

Thank you!

By the way, Gweiadur uses pìn (with grave accent) - can that be accepted too, please?

(Presumably to indicate that it rhymes with llyn "lake" and not with llun "picture".)
