I just wanted to ask whether in spoken welsh is it better to say fy mod i, ei fod e... or bo fi, bo fe...
Is it natural to say the second structure?

So after odi, would you feel it more natural to say e or fe?
DaiTwp wrote:(m)oifad is very much a dialect (Gwenhwyseg) word of S/SE Wales, parts of eastern camarthenshire being the furthest west that its used. Not many people use it nowadays (or would even understand it) outside of the areas surroundng the swansea valley, worse luck. Nofio is far far more common and certainly the standard term for swimming. I know 1st lang speakers from further west who now live in the swansea valley but had never come across oifad before moving there.
Its pronounced oi (as when you shout oi!) vad.
