In many languages, responding with yes or no is simple. This work shows that in Welsh a variety of forms can be used, depending upon syntax, morphology, lexis and semantics.The work will appeal to scholars of various interests: the chapters which analyse the answering system provide interesting data for theorists and comparative linguists- the chapters which describe and attempt to explain variation will be of interest to sociolinguists- and, of course, the whole work will appeal to Celticists.
