Lesson number 7 teaches an important aspect in Welsh which is negation. I'm also including a list of vocabulary about the human body, and finally a conversation about getting to know someone. 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.
Negation is the opposite of an affirmative statement. So basically any negative expression such as "no", "never" "nothing" etc. Knowing how to use the negation form could help you double the number of expressions you could use in a sentence.
Here are some negation expressions that you might come across or use very often. 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.
|Not yet||dim eto|
|No longer||dim rhagor|
|Cannot||dim yn gallu|
|Should not||dylid ddim|
Now we will try to implement some of the negative expressions above into full Welsh sentences. That way you will be able to use the word not only by itself but embedded in a structure.
|Don't worry!||Paid/ Peidiwch a phoeni!|
|I cannot remember the word||Nid wyf yn cofio un gair|
|I do not speak Japanese||Nid wyf yn siarad Siapaneeg|
|I don't know!||Nid wy'n gwybod!|
|I'm not fluent in Italian yet||Nid wyf yn gallu siarad Eidaleg yn rhugl eto|
|I'm not interested!||Nid oes gen i unrhyw ddiddordeb!|
|No one here speaks Greek||Does neb yma yn siarad Groeg|
|No problem!||Dim problem!|
|This is not correct||Dydy hyn ddim yn gywir|
|This is wrong||Mae hyn yn anghywir|
|We don't understand||Nid ydym yn deall|
|You should not forget this word||Dylwch chi ddim anghofio'r gair yma|
