  • The two conditional tenses can be opted between freely.
  • The preterite is relatively rare and mostly interchangeable with the imperfect.
  • In the tenses given here, all forms of bod must be linked to a noun or verb with yn, wedi, or some other similar particle.

bod (verb functioning as conjunction)

  1. that... is, that... are, etc. (personal forms: mod i, fod ti, fod e/o, bod hi, bod ni, bod chi, bod nhw)
    Dw i’n meddwl bod hi’n ddoniol. ― I think that she’s funny.
    Mae hi’n meddwl mod i’n dod. ― She thinks that I’m coming.
    Roedd Eleri yn dweud fod ti’n sâl. ― Eleri was saying you’re ill.

Usage notes[edit]

  • Nouns can take either bod or fod, regardless of gender.
