Cantonese Short Lesson + Exercise 10.5: ¦¦ Vocab: Numbers! ¦¦
For the first time, instead of me scribbling all the numbers, I will refer you to this link right here. Note that we write 零 instead of 〇. I apologize for the non-use of the Jyutping pronunciation system. Fortunately though, there is a Youtube link at the bottom of the numbers table if you require it.
If you are unsure how the pattern goes, here is a short guide:
The first thing you need to know is the numbers from one to ten inclusive. For ease, I have provided them here.
一 yāt 1
二 yih 2
三 sàam 3
四 sei 4
五 nǵh 5
六 luhk 6
七 chāt 7
八 baat 8
九 gáu 9
十 sahp 10
Now what we do, for example, to find say 86, is to write it in the form (first number)(ten)(second number). So 86 = 八十六.
If the number is bigger than 100, say 366, we write it in the form (first number)(hundred)(second number)(ten)(third number). So 366 = 三百六十六.
Now instead of making a new post for the exercise, here are a few you can have a go at:
Thank you for reading this (and/or completing the exercise)! Questions are welcome!
