Usage notesEdit

 traditionally triggers the aspirate mutation, but in speech this may be absent. Before vowels, ag is used instead, except in some colloquial versions of the language where it remains â.

In the colloquial language â meaning “with” is mostly used after verbs such as cwrdd (meet), priodi (marry), ymweld (visit). The synonyms gyda or efo are used more generally.

InflectionEdit
