6.7 - Pwy - who

Let's look again at Pwy? (Who?) and Ble? (Where?)

Pwy ydw i? - Who am I?
Pwy wyt ti - Who are you?
Pwy ydych chi? - Who are you?
Pwy ydyn ni? - Who are we?

Pwy ydy e(o)/hi? - Who is he / she?
Pwy ydyn nhw? - Who are they?

Ble rydw i.....? - Where am (do) I.....?
Ble rwyt ti.....? - Where are (do) you.....?
Ble rydych chi..? - Where are (do) you?
Ble rydyn ni.....? - Where are (do) we.....?

Ble mae e(o) / hi.....? - Where is (does) he / she.....?
Ble maen nhw.....? - Where are (do) they.....?

Notice the slight difference in the 1st and 2nd person forms after 'Ble?'. To be perfectly correct there is an r at the beginning of the verb, but this is a very minor point and it doesn't matter if you forget about it!

But do notice the different verb forms in the 3rd person.

Pwy ydy e (o) / hi?
Ble mae e(o) / hi?
Pwy ydyn nhw?
Ble maen nhw.?

Who is he?
- Pwy ydy e(o)?

Where is the child?
- Ble mae'r plentyn?

Where does she live?
- Ble mae hi'n byw?

Who is the boy?
- Pwy ydy'r bachgen?

Where do they work?
- Ble maen nhw'n gweithio?

Who are they?
- Pwy ydyn nhw?
