Welsh has three words for "the," but they all have different contexts:
- yr is used before vowels, which includes "y," "h," and "w."
- y is used before consonants (except for the above).
- r is used just after a vowel in the previous word, regardless of whether the next letter is a vowel or consonant. It is appended to the previous word with an apostrophe.
- y = the
- yr = the
- 'r = the
- tre = town
- llawr = floor
- nenfwd = ceiling
- wal = wall
- peintio = to paint
- llong = ship
