  • Ydych yn gadael yr ardal Americanwr[?] = 'Are you leaving the area American?' ('American' as in a person). I can't tell if the adjective/noun swap and the interrogative verb are intentional, but that could easily not be the case. ('You are leaving the American area' would be Rydych yn gadael yr ardal Americanaidd.) ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 01:23 16 September 2014
