A / Ac - And
When to use 'a' or 'ac' for 'and' in Welsh?
There are two forms of the word 'and' in Welsh. They do not differ in meaning. The two forms are:-
Use ‘a’ when the next word starts with a consonant.
Use ‘ac’ when the next word starts with a vowel. The Welsh vowels are:- a, e, i, o, u, w, y
Some Welsh words use 'a' before them and not 'ac' even though they start with a consonant. We have not listed the exceptions to the above rule here as it is probably easier to acquaint yourself with them as you go along.
