Possession: Gyda is the twenty-fourth (assuming read left to right) skill of the Welsh language tree. It has five lessons that teach how to describe "to have" with gyda, along with a few new vocabulary words.

Grammar NotesEdit

Welsh does not have a verb for "to have"; instead, a roundabout expression is used. In this skill, you are introduced to the slightly more common expression that uses gyda. The phrases roughly translate to "there is/are X by/with X".

Because this is a "there is/are" expression, oes and does are the question and negative forms, respectively.
