Cantonese Exercise 10.4: ¦¦ Vocab: Clothing ¦¦
Knowledge testing time...
- a) Write down all the months of the year in English.
b) Do the same, but in Cantonese. All you need to do is to find the numbers 1-12 in Cantonese. For example, December = Twelve Month. `Month' is given as 月.
c) Now corresponding to each month, write down one piece of clothing that would be appropriate for it in English. For example, 'scarf' - `January'.
d) Do the same, but in Cantonese. If you have run out of words from the previous lesson, feel free to use the web.
Hey, Pok. Why are you saying, 'write Cantonese?' I understand that Cantonese has a few special words, but it's either in Simplified or Traditional. Just saying, ^~^
You may have noticed that (seeing as you are native to Mandarin), a considerable few of words in 'Clothing', and 'Places and Transport' are not the same as that in Mandarin. For example, we say '巴士' for 'bus', but '公共汽車' in Mandarin (literally: public car).
Whilst these differences are rather small, I would much rather emphasize 'Cantonese' in place of 'Trad. Chinese' :)
