Bod - That

  • bod is, of course, the Welsh verb to be . Under certain circumstances it also means 'that'.

    bod is used to introduce noun clauses

    e.g. Dwi'n gwybod - I know and
    Mae Dai yn feddw - Dai is drunk.

    If we combine the two we use 'that' In English and 'bod' in Welsh:

    Dwi'n gwybod bod Dai yn feddw. - I know that Dai is drunk.

    Although 'that' can be omitted from English sentences ( e.g. "I know Dai is drunk") bod should always be included in Welsh.
