Good question! In Welsh you have the option to emphasise part of a sentence by putting it at the front before the verb. When you do this with the subject (the bit that comes straight the verb in a normal sentence - here, chi a phartner), the verb reverts back to its "neutral" form, which is always the third person singular, whatever now comes before it. There's also a soft mutation on the verb.
