Welsh Pronouns

This is a list of pronouns in Welsh. This includes subject, object, and the possessive. These are used on a daily basis, so don't skip this lesson. We start with the object pronouns such as "I, you, her ..."

I: fi
You: ti
He: ef
She: hi
We: ni
You (pl.): chi
They: nhw

Here are samples to demonstrate how the object pronoun is used in a sentence.

I love you: Rwy'n dy garu di
She is beautiful: May hi'n brydferth
We are happy: Rydym ni'n hapus
They are dancing: Mae nhw'n dawnsio

Now we look into the subject pronoun such as "me, him, us, them ...".

Me: fi
You: ti
Him: ef
Her: hi
Us: ni
You (pl.): chi
Them: nhw

These are examples to demonstrate how the subject pronoun is used in a sentence.

Give me your phone number: Rho dy rhif ffôn i mi
I can give you my email: Galla i roi fy nghyfeiriad ebost i ti
Tell him to call me: Dwed wrtho i fy ngalw / ffonio i
Can you call us?: Allwch chi ffonio ni?

We reach now the possessive adjective part, used to refer to thing we possess. Examples: "my, our, their ...".

My: fy
Your: dy
His: ei
Her: ei
Our: ein
Your (pl.): eich
Their: eu

Here are samples to demonstrate how the possessive adjective is used.

My phone number is . . .: Fy rhif ffôn ydy...
His email is . . .: Ei gyfeiriad ebost ydy...
Our dream is to visit Spain: Ein breuddwyd ni ydy i deithio i Sbaen...
Their country is beautiful: Mae eu gwlad yn brydferth

This is the possessive pronoun. Used as an alternative to the possessive adjectives above. Instead of saying "It is my dog" you can say "It is mine".

Mine: fy un i
Yours: dy un di
His: ei un ef
Hers: ei un hi
Ours: ein un ni
Yours (pl.): eich un chi
Theirs: eu un nhw

These are some examples of the possessive pronoun in a sentence.

The book is mine: Fy llyfr i ydy hwn
Is this pen yours?: Ai dy ysgrifbin di ydy hwn?
The shoes are hers: Ei esgidiau hi ydyn nhw
Victory is ours: Ein buddugoliaeth ni ydy hon
