We have already come across clauses in the present and past tenses which follow verbs like 'meddwl', for example:
Dw i'n meddwl ei fod e'n mynd I think that he's going
Dw i'n meddwl ei fod e wedi gorffen I think that he has finished Arwyn asks: Wyt ti'n meddwl y bydd hi'n iawn? - Do you think that she will be alright?
The clause is in the future tense therefore it's introduced by 'y'. This 'y' is hardly heard in everyday speech.
Dw i'n meddwl y bydd hi'n bwrw glaw yfory or Dw i'n meddwl bydd hi'n bwrw glaw yfory - I think it will be raining tomorrow.
Mae en meddwl y bydd hi'n cyrraedd am dri o'r gloch or Mae hi'n meddwl bydd hi'n cyrraedd am dri o'r gloch.
Agnes is surprised when she hears that Arwyn is complaining about Alwena, the girl employed to look after his mother. Agnes insists:
'Chewch chi neb gwell na Alwena' - You wont get anyone better than Alwena
Because this is a negative statement, there is a treiglad llaes - aspirate mutation - at the beginning:
Cewch chi rywun gwell - You will get somebody better Chewch chi neb gwell - You wont get anyone better
The other two letters that take the aspirate mutation are P which changes to Ph, and T which changes to Th.
Phryna i ddim - I won't buy Thala i ddim - I won't pay
Arwyn and Jenny have been married for 12 years - deuddeg mlynedd. One year is blwyddyn or un flwyddyn, but we use blynedd afer every other number. Remember that blynedd mutates after some numbers:
Un flwyddyn Dwy flynedd Tair blynedd Pedair blynedd Pum mlynedd Chwe blynedd Saith mlynedd Wyth mlynedd Naw mlynedd Deng mlynedd Un flynedd ar ddeg Deuddeg mlynedd Pymtheg mlynedd Ugain mlynedd Can mlynedd
