Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1832 edition. Excerpt: ...the auxiliary follows, and the adverbial particle is retained; as Nid yn codi yr wyf, not rising am I. Nid yn tyttu yr wyffi, not boring am I. Nidyn metku yr ydwyf, not failing am I. Nid yn dysgu yr ydwyffi, not learning am I. 5. The principal verb being of the infinitive mood, present tense, the auxiliary may precede or follow it, with or without the pronouns, observing that in following one of the adverbial particles, y, ydd, yr, is to be interposed, when the auxiliary is a personal verb; and a, when any other auxiliary is used. But if a negation is to be expressed, one of the negatives, ni, nid, nis, takes the place of such a particle; or otherwise, the negative nid may precede the principal verb. It may be directed generally, that when any one of the characteristics, which denote the subjunctive, optative, or potential mood, is to be expressed, the adverbs used for that purpose take the same position and are governed by the same rules, as are above laid down, for the forming of a negative. 6. The foregoing form of the verb in the infinitive mood may be expressed by the aid of prepositions; more especially i, to, or for; am, about, for; ar, upon; gwedi, after: --Rhaidyw imi dalu, necessary is it for me to pay. Rhaid imi alw, 1 must call. Gwell imi dewi, better for me to be silent. Dot i geisiaw, go to fetch. Wyfyn myncd i rodiaw, I am going to take a walk. Wyf am fyncd, I am for going. WyJ arfedr, I am upon intending. Wyfwedi metric, I am after dying, I am dead. Wyfwedi darfod, I am after finishing I have done. Section 7. Of the Syntax of the Verb. For the sake of shewing the construction in the examples of the rules of syntax, there are figures affixed to the three principal parts of the sentences; that is, --to the subject, or nominative case,show more
