7.3 - Treiglad meddal - Soft mutation after 'o' (from)

The preposition 'o' also causes a Mutation at the beginning of words which follow it. It is called a Soft Mutation and it is different from the Nasal Mutation caused by the preposition 'yn'. Here are some examples. Again - my advice is to learn a few, parrot fashion.
