Hello Bjorn,


Thanks for your reply! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Actually, it's a special case. The language used in a news broadcast is relatively formal, so sometimes you can hear the written form. It definitely helps understand a news broadcast if you learn the written form too. ๐Ÿ‘ I think both are quite similar, but it may be hard for learners to memorize two forms in the beginning.

Moreover, we have a brief video about this topic:

Hi Ada!

Thank you for the answer! So they speak written language on the weather forecast, interesting. If I want to learn to understand a news broadcast in Cantonese, do I have to learn the written form of the language ? How different is it from the spoken form, just a few words that are different, or would it be like learning a completely different language ?

Hi Bjorn,


Thanks for your questions.

Both ไธ‹ๆ™ (haa6 zau3) and ไธ‹ๅˆ (haa6 ng5) mean "afternoon", but the former is spoken form, while the latter is written form.

The difference between ๆœๆ—ฉ (ziu1 zou2) and ๆ—ฉไธŠ (zou2 soeng6) is similar. They mean "morning", but the former is spoken form, while the latter is written form. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hello,


What is the difference between ไธ‹ๆ™ and ไธ‹ๅˆ ? Same question for the difference between ๆ—ฉไธŠ and ๆœๆ—ฉ ?
