:clueless:

Welsh does not have a distinct word for ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Rather, the form of ‘yes/no’ used depends on the verb implied in the question, e.g. ‘I am’, ‘I will’. Table 9 below shows each response elicited. Each pair of questions occurs only once in the set, apart from the first three pairs mentioned, which each occur twice.

Responses which use the colloquial form of ‘you’ are not elicited in any of these questions, as it was not felt that this lack of formality would arise frequently enough in an interactive application to justify their inclusion. :bash:
