Usage notes[edit]

  • Like many other unnaturalised, g-initial, feminine singular nouns derived from English, gêm does not undergo soft mutation following the article (y); however, any adjective that modifies gêm mutates as it normally would. Conversely, gêm always undergoes nasal mutation to ngêm.

Mutation[edit]

Welsh mutation
radical soft nasal aspirate
gêm unchanged ngêm unchanged
