How to Say Please in Cantonese

There are two words that means "Please" in Cantonese:

  1.    (this may also mean ask or invite)
  2. 唔该    (this phrase can also mean "Thank you". Literately it means "not deserved" or "should not (bother you). "  )

We can use them interchangeably.   The first form is more formal.

Examples:

1. Please open your books:   請打開你嘅書。cing2 daa2 hoi1 nei5 ge3 syu1

2. Please say that again once more :  唔该你讲多一次。 m4 goi1 nei5 gong2 do1 jat1 ci3
