Hi Roberto,


Thanks for your question. ๐Ÿ˜‰

็ฅจ is closer to the written word, while ้ฃ› is a word that we always use in our daily life.

Hi,


What's the difference between (่ปŠ)็ฅจ and ้ฃ›. How many words are there for 'ticket' ?


Best regards,

Roberto

Hello Jing,


Thank you for your question.


ๅ…ซ้”้€š(baat3 daat6 tung1) ~ Octopus


It is a rechargeable smart card or electronic money system. It is primarily used for public transport in Hong Kong.

{ๅ…ซ้”้€š(baat3 daat6 tung1) ~ Octopus} can also be used as a payment card for vending machines and stores.

What is ๅ…ซ้”้€š / Octopus? Is it a name of a ticket or company?

Hello Yaya,


You will find the written form of Cantonese very common in the news article, written notice, research article, poster, instruction menu or pamphlet, etc. It is a more formal expression. The one you see in the video is the formal way and this is the one you will see on the real ticket machine or find in any text notice in the train station. This is why it is useful to learn both the written and spoken language of Cantonese.

I've read that the written language of Cantonese is different from the spoken language, and it's Mandarin or Mandarin-ish Cantonese. and in the videos the colloquial way to write the words is shown, right?

so wouldn't it be written differently in a train station in Hong Kong?
