I don't


#1

I’ve just gone through challenge 10 level 1 for the 3rd time. I’m totally confused between the don’ts. Nes i ddim, Don i ddim, or dwi ddim. Deborah tried to explain, but I’m still getting mixed up, any advice would be gratefully accepted. Diolch yn fawr.

Nes i ddim translates to I didn’t and is used for verbs that denote actions (rather than states), for example:
Sori, nes i ddim deall beth wedaist ti. - Sorry, I didn’t understand what you said.
On the other hand, do’n i ddim is I didn’t for verbs denoting states, or for straight up I wasn’t:
Do’n i ddim yn gwybod hynny. - I didn’t know that.
Do’n i ddim yma ddoe. - I wasn’t here yesterday.

Dw i ddim is in the same vein as do’n i ddim, but in the present:
Dw i ddim yn moyn mynd. - I don’t want to go.
