Lesson 6 How do you say this in Cantonese?
Welcome to CantonesePod.com! 欢迎大家来到粤语播客！
What! What did I say?
glad meet ( glad to meet you = welcome)
big family (= everyone)
Guangdong language (=Cantonese)
播 = broadcast
播客 = podcast ( derives from 博客 for blog and similar sound of podcast )
OK. Today's sentence pattern:
How do (you/we) say/write ... in Cantonese/English/French/Japanese?
粤语/英语/法语/日语 ... 点讲/写？
点 = how
讲 = say/speak
写 = write
A:粤语 "I love you" 点讲? （ How do you say "I love you?" )
A:英文 嘅 丑 字 点写啊? ( How do you write the word "ugly/shame" in English?)
A: 英文 嘅 LOVE 点串啊? ( How do you spell "love" in English?)
串 = spell ( literately means string something together )
啊 = question indicator (put at the end of a sentence to change a statement into a question. )
OK, see you next week at CantonesePod.com
