16.4 - Gofyn cwestiwn - Asking a question

Let's ask some questions in the Present Tense:

Ydy Pavarotti'n dew? - Ydy.
- Is Pavarotti fat? - Yes (he is).

Ydych chi'n fyr? - Nac ydw.
- Are you short? - No (I'm not).

Ydyn nhw'n olau? - Ydyn.
- Are they fair? - Yes (they are).

Ydy hi'n bert? - Ydy.
- Is she pretty? - Yes (she is).

Although 'a' is normally used in front of a consonant and 'ac' in front of a vowel we always say:

ac mae / ac roedd

Mae Siân yn dal ac mae hi'n denau.
- Siân is tal and she is thin.

Roedd John Kennedy yn olau ac roedd e'n olygus.
- John Kennedy was fair and he was handsome.
