Hello Dany Tran,


Thanks for your question.

They are different.

่ฝๅบŠ (lok6 cong4) ~ to leave the bed

่ตท่บซ (hei2 san1) ~ to wake up

When one wakes up , for example at 6, he can still scroll through his phone and may spend even half a hour. During that time, he is still staying in bed. After that, he leaves the bed at 6:30, then it is the action of ่ฝๅบŠ (lok6 cong4). ๐Ÿ˜‰

I want to ask ่ฝๅบŠ and ่ตท่บซ are used in the same way. For example. ๆˆ‘6้ปž่ตท่บซ = ๆˆ‘6้ปž่ฝๅบŠใ€‚ Thanks

Hi Ashley,


Thanks for your question.

Although ๅ•ฒ (di1) literally means "some/a few" in Cantonese, it also works if ignoring "ๅ•ฒ" in this sentence, which means, you can also say "ไฝข่ฝๅ’—ไนœๅ˜ขๆๆ–™ๅ‘ข". Adding "ๅ•ฒ" can however soften the tone of the sentence and sound native. ๐Ÿ‘


Moreover, we have a lesson about the final particles. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Please let us a message if any questions. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi,


In the sentence ไฝข่ฝๅ’—ๅ•ฒไนœๅ˜ขๆๆ–™ๅ‘ข, what purpose does ๅ•ฒ(di) serve?


Agree with Lofu. It would be nice to see some explanations about final particles.


Thanks for these listening lessons. Finding them really helpful.

Hi Lofu,


Thanks for your questions. ๐Ÿ˜‰

About the lesson,

1) ๅ–บๅบฆ (hai2 dou6) means here. For example, ๆˆ‘ๅ–บๅบฆๆ•ด็ทŠๆ›ฒๅฅ‡ (ngo5 hai2 dou6 zing2 gan2 kuk1 kei4) ~ I am here making cookies.

2) Yes, you can omit ๅ–บๅบฆ (hai2 dou6). It just gives an extra information about the location.

3) ๆ”ชๅ‹ป (gaau2 wan4) is more specific than ๆบๅŸ‹ (kau1 maai4). More precisely speaking, you can understand ๆ”ชๅ‹ป (gaau2 wan4) as "to stir", which means to move one's hand or an implement continuously in order to mix something thoroughly. It is always used when talking about cooking.


Regarding the second part:

1) Thanks for your opinion! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will suggest it to our team.

2) I guess you are talking about ็ญ‰ๅŸ‹ๆˆ‘ (dang2 maai4 ngo5) ~ wait for me.

Hi,


The sentences in Cantonese often contain the words ๅ–บๅบฆ. What is the function of this?

Would it be wrong to say ไธ€ไฝ่€ๅธซๆ•ด็ทŠ่›‹็ณ•?

What is the difference between ๆบๅŸ‹ and ๆ”ชๅ‹ป as both mean "to mix"?


Now something out of the context of this lesson:

- Would it be possible to make a list of the final particles with some example sentences?

- From a Hong Kong movie I heard the sentence "็ญ‰ sai ๆˆ‘". I understand that it means "wait for me" but I cannot figure out the word "sai".


Many thanks in anticipation.

Best regards,

Lofu
