The 3rd lesson is about the plural in Welsh and how to create it from the singular form. In addition, I will include a list of vocabulary about languages, nationalities, and countries. Finally, you will find some common everyday sentences. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Welsh Classes.
Knowing how to create the plural from the singular word can double the vocabulary you already know. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some grammatical rules. For example how to change the word "book" to "books" or "woman" to "women".
Below is a list of singular words and their plural equivalent. I included examples about nature as well as about humans. The table contains 3 columns (English, Welsh, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
Now we will try to implement some of the words above into full Welsh sentences. That way you will be able to see how both forms are used when embedded in a structure.
|We speak two languages||Rydym ni'n siarad dwy iaith|
|They speak four languages||Rydyn nhw'n siarad pedair iaith|
|I visited one country||Ymwelais i â un gwlad|
|She visited three countries||Ymwelodd hi â thair gwlad|
|She has one sister||Mae ganddi un chwaer|
|He has two sisters||Mae ganddo dwy chwaer|
