Welsh How to show possession… This PowerPoint was created by Matthew Vernon, here.here
Mae cath gyda fy. Mae = there is/ there are cath (f) = cat gyda = with fy = me Mae cath gyda fy. (There is a cat with me.) I have a cat. Mae dwy cath gyda fy. I have two cats. Dau (two) is ‘dwy’ here because the noun is feminine. Tri becomes tair before a feminine noun. Pedwar becomes pedair as well.
Mae cath ’da fy. Mae tair cath ’da fy. I have three cats. A couple of notices 1.‘Gyda’ is usually shortened to ‘’da’. 2.When you use a number to identify the amount of said noun, the noun stays singular after it.
Oes cath ’da ti? (Is there a cat with you?) Do you have a cat? Answers: Oes = yes (there is) Nacoes = no (there isn’t) Nacoes, does dim cath ’da fy. Oes bochdew ’da ti? Oes, mae bochdew ’da fy. Nacoes, does dim bochdew ’da fy.
