May I? is the eighteenth (assuming read left to right) skill of the language tree for Welsh. The skill contains a total of three lessons, and in this skill you will learn about the phrase "May I?", as well as how to say "please" and lenition.

Grammar NotesEdit

Lenition is a fancy word for "consonant softening." This means that the consonant following a vowel in the previous word will be softened so that the sentence flows better. It is a common theme in all Celtic languages, and Welsh is no exception.

The schema for lenition is as follows:

  • t->d
  • c->g
  • p->b
  • b->f
  • g is removed
  • d->dd
  • m->f
  • ll->l
  • rh->r
