cantotraining:

A phrase you use in English many times a day is Thank you.

There is 2 ways to say thanks in Cantonese, depending on whether someone is helping you, or whether they are giving you a gift. Note that when you make a purchase in a shop or restaurant, that is considered helping, as you are paying for…

OH! Finally understood the difference! Always thought 唔該 is a more casual way of saying thanks! HAHA

Cantonese Onomatopoeia

cantoneseplease:

sardonicli:

Heart beating: bìhng-bìhng 怦怦

Sneeze: hāt-chī 乞嗤

Cat meowing: mēu-mēu 喵喵

Dog barking: wōu-wōu 㕵㕵

Duck calling: gua, gua 呱呱

Sharp strike: bìhng-līng baang-làahng 乒鈴嘭唥

Water dripping: dihk-dihk 滴滴

Jingling: dìuh-díu fihng 吊吊捹 (吊 means “hang”)

I’m obsessed with using “bìhng-līng baang-làahng” as much as possible when there is a loud noise. “Wah, what’s all that bìhng-līng baang-làahng!?”

bìhng-līng baang-làahng!
