I have a question about the potential confusion between the future of bod and conditional of bod which are extremely similar - I have just gone back to try (again, again ) to remind myself which way round the plural endings are.
So, in the real world....it seems just about possible to get a cigarette paper between bydden ni (we would be) and byddwn ni (we will be) - I can imagine that emphasis on the ending can be picked out to a skilled ear (which I am working on).....but what about byddwn i (I would be) vs byddwn ni (we will be) in speech? (Oooo )
At the very least there would seem to be the basis for some brilliant sketches for the Welsh Two Ronnies here.
Does context mean that in the real world it’s ‘just not a problem’....or do people choose a different form to say things if it might be a problem - I guess there would be several other ways including the Baswn variant, verb stem plus ending, wna etc.
It seems that both tenses would be quite likely to be involved in the same conversation. Baswn seems like a good option but isn’t used in either SSIW course - n or s - which makes me think it isn’t used to solve this problem.
I’ll stop babbling - is this a non-problem? (If so, how so )
