Step 3 : The indefinite article in Welsh

The indefinite article is what we call the word a in English. The indefinite article is used with nouns in English (a book, a chair, a door etc.). To get started in Welsh, pick just 3 important nouns. We suggest you learn the nouns llyfr, cadair and drws (book, chair, door). Once you have learned these nouns, you can then learn how to use each noun with the indefinite article. This is easy in Welsh, because in Welsh, there is no indefinite article. So the word llyfr can mean book or a book, the word cadair can mean chair or a chair and the word drws can mean door or a door. You can scroll to the top of this page to see a short lesson about the indefinite article in Welsh including useful examples. Once you have learned to use the indefinite article with the Welsh nouns llyfr, cadair and drws, you're ready to move on to Step 4 (the definite article in Welsh).
