29.6 - Cyfarwyddiadau - Commands

(a) mynd - to go

'Mynd' is an irregular verb, as you know, so the commands are irregular.

Ewch! - Go! (a CHI command)
Cer! - Go! (a TI command)
Dos! - Go! (a TI command in N.W.)

Ewch yn syth ymlaen!
- Go straight on!

Cer ar hyd Stryd y Frenhines!
- Go along Queen Street!

Dos i'r chwith!
- Go to the left!

Ewch heibio i'r banc.
- Go past the bank.

(b) All regular verbs form their commands by adding to the stem the endings:

- wch (for a CHI command)
- a (for a TI command)

Example (i) croesi - to cross

Croeswch! - Cross! (a CHI command)
Croesa! - Cross! (a TI command)

Croesa'r ffordd wrth y banc.
- Cross the road by the bank.

Croeswch yr heol ar bwys yr ysgol.
- Cross the road near the school.

Example (ii) troi - to turn

Trowch! - Turn! (a CHI command)
Troia / Tro! - Turn! (a TI command)

Trowch i'r dde wrth siop y cigydd.
- Turn to the right by the butcher's (shop).

Tro / Troia i'r chwith yn ymyl y caffe.
- Turn to the left near the cafe.
