Verb \\: The verbs are so difficult to conjugate. Can someone help me with the remaining forms of the verb "to be"

dw i
wyt ti
mae e/hi

? we?
dych chi
? they?

also i don't really understand how this verb changes when asking questions. I've tried looking at some guides, but I don't really get it. apparently it's optional to miss of the "d" in dych: "sut(d)ych chi?" is this just a pronounciation thing or is it gramatical? :S

According to my book (Walisisch - Wort für Wort) "to be" is conjugated as follows:

dw i
rwyt ti
mae e/hi

rydyn ni
rydych chi
maen nhw

Another source is here

It seems that there exists more than one solution to conjugate "to be". Probably because of differences between North and South Welsh.

Here is a short chapter about questions.

Hopefully a native speaker can clearify the problem soon.
