Hi Sam,

Thank you for your comments.

lai5 baai3 and sing1 kei4 are interchangeable, so you can use either 😁

Regarding 是 vs 係, 是 is the written form and 係 is the spoken form; so rest of the sentence should follow the same form. For example: "We are" = 我們是 (written form) = 我哋係 (spoken form)


Feel free to ask if you have any other questions.

Oh, pressed "send" button too quick...

And is lai5 baai3 jat1 more formal than sing1 kei4 jat1?

Thanks again!

Hello!

Sorry to bother you again for I have another question.😅

Is there any rule regarding the use of 是 instead of 係?

Is 是 more formal?


Thanks a lot!

Hello uner,


明天見! (ming4 tin1 gin3) sounds more formal and written form of expression.

Of course 聽日見!(ting1 jat6 gin3) has the same meaning and it`s just more colloquial! You can definitely use it too. 😄

Hello Craig,


Very Good observation! 👍


The jyutping for Monday and Sunday are the same but the tone is different.

星期一 (sing1 kei4 jat1) ~ Monday

星期日(sing1 kei4 jat6) ~ Sunday


There is no 星期七(sing1 kei4 cat1) expression in Cantonese although Sunday seems to be the 7th day in a week.
