Hello Bjorn,


Thanks for you question.

First, ไธŠๆ™ (soeng6 zau3) = ๆœๆ—ฉ (ziu1 zou2) = morning. ๐Ÿ˜„

At line 7, ไธŠๆ™ (soeng6 zau3) implies "early morning". In fact, we do not have a specific term for "early morning". Saying ไธŠๆ™ (soeng6 zau3) is already enough, but if you really want to emphasize "early", it is possible to include the time so let others know it's really early.

At line 9, normally, "early" means "morning" to us. So ๆœๆ—ฉ (ziu1 zou2) is used here.

Hi,

I wonder about lines 7 and 9, they leave home early, which Cantonese words indicate 'early' ? I thought ไธŠๆ™ was any time before noon, but I might be wrong ? And also I thought ๆœๆ—ฉ is morning, but not necessarily early morning. I know different people can have different ideas of what's early, but still...

Hi Tim,


Thanks for your question.

Here are some further examples:

1. ๅ‘ข้ƒจ้›ป่…ฆ็”จ่ฝ้ƒฝๅ””้Œฏใ€‚(ni1 bou6 din6 nou5 jung6 lok6 dou1 m4 co3) ~ After using this computer for a while, I find that quite good.

2. ๅปฃๆฑ่ฉฑๅญธ่ฝๅ†‡ๆƒณๅƒไธญๅ’้›ฃใ€‚(gwong2 dung1 waa2 hok6 lok6 mou5 soeng2 zoeng6 zung1 gam3 naan4) ~ After learning Cantonese for a while, it is not as difficult as expected.


Please let us know if you still have any questions. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Do you have more examples for the usage of "lok6" after different verbs?

Thanks!

Hello Fish Tan,


You are right that ๅ•ฒ(di1) can be used as comparative form like ๅคšๅ•ฒ(do1 di1) ~ more or ้ฒๅ•ฒ(ci4 di1) ~ later. But it can also be used as pronoun.

ๅ•ฒ(di1) ~ those, some

ๅ‘ขๅ•ฒ(ni1 di1) ~ these

ๅ—ฐๅ•ฒ(go2 di1) ~ those

May i know how ๅ•ฒ is used?

Is it for a comparative form? For example ๅฅฝๅ•ฒ(better)and ๆ—ฉๅ•ฒ(earlier) ?

Or are there any other purposes?

Siuling Tai2 lok6 hou2 hou2 sik6 wo3 look! no hands !

This is in the sample sentences literally does this mean look and see know well I am guessing that one would know by the context that in this sentence one would understand it was look and see I am able to do it without my hands I.e. Look!No hands! m4 goi4 Lo taai
