Re: tamoe's needs help for hokkien translation thread

Abun,

Yes, I follow POJ tone numbering.

Actually I guessed the tone based on trial-and-error, I feel the tone 5 (7 in sandhi) is the one which sounds good if used in sentence.

Thanks for the information about 厝.

Re: tamoe's needs help for hokkien translation thread

Hi Abun,

Thanks for your detailed answer. How about "kai"?

Example sentences:

no kai chu (two houses)

I often heard it in medan hokkien, it's also used as general classifier. Is there mandarin word for it?

Re: Penang Hokkien lessons

Tamoe, Hoan-gêng, hoan-gêng. Lú sī Ìnnîⁿ tólo̍h ê lâng? Medan Hokkien and Penang Hokkien are very close indeed. U may want to look into Riau Hokkien. Also, it seems the penang hokkien has limited hokkien vocabulary. That's why there are many loanwords from english or malay language. If I want to bo...

Re: Hi from indonesia

Hi abun, Finally, my posts are approved, it takes one month to be approved :shock:. I thought this forum has been abandoned by the moderator. Indonesian hokkien (or medan hokkien as they are the majority) is almost same with penang hokkien, most of their vocabulary are same. So medan hokkien is zhan...
