Hello Rachel,


Thanks for your question.

We do have two pronunciations for mashed potatoes and yam.

In Cantonese, even for the same characters, there are different pronunciations according to different contents. For example, ๆœฑๅคๅŠ› (zyu1 gu1 lik1) ~ chocolate, and ๅŠ›้‡ (lik6 loeng6) ~ power. You can see that ๅŠ› should be pronounced differently.


For ็•ช่–ฏ, syu should be in 2nd tone rather than 5th tone. We will fix it as soon as possible.

็•ช่–ฏ (faan1 syu2) ~ yam

=> As a special case, ่–ฏ can be in 2nd/4th tone for ็•ช่–ฏ็ณ–ๆฐด (faan1 syu4 tong4 seoi2) ~ Sweet potato soup. But 2nd tone is absolutely correct.

่–ฏ่“‰ (syu4 jung4) ~ mashed potatoes


Just let us know if you still have any unclear. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why are the syu4/5 pronounced differently for mashed potatoes vs yams?
