Re: Ang-Mor Knee

阿蓮: 有袂stocking到knee無?
店女: 到胸? 到腰, 有. 無到胸ㄟ!
阿蓮: 毋是通nangㄟ'胸'... 是紅魔ㄟ'knee'!

(胸=ni, not sure of correct hanzi here)

couldn't find hanzi for nang, used ㄟ for e (often written in romanisation on all-hanzi wepsite)

I wonder how 阿店 would respond...? :p

Yue, why haven't you ever expected a non-Vietnamese to spell a Vietnamese word correctly?

Re: why?

Coming back after my leave of absence due to not checking this site regularly since about 2 weeks since it went down, I look upon this topic and I can't stop laughing.

Re: Which Chinese dialect sounds most aesthetically pleasing

No, ppk, you are very very VERY wrong. "i understand that in japanese the official pronouciation now is 'chugoku jin'. and 'chung kuo jen' used to be a proper romanisation. i meant during the early 20th century in japan." Not in Japanese was the proper romanisation of 中&#22269;人 <&#12385;&am...

Re: What are Hakkas?

From what I've read, Minnan (aka Hokkien, Hokgian, Fukien) is closest to early Chinese (qin-han), Hakka is closest to early-middle (sui-tang-song), and Cantonese to late-middle (ming-qing).

Re: Is Hokkien A Living Language?

yes PPK ;) I was going to buy the print version of that, but wepsite version valley useful lah! However somehow I doubt they care about Singlish at all, they seem over-ambitious here.

Re: Ang-Mor Knee

I didn't use a specific romanisation as I did not transcribe it, I recieved it from a Singaporean friend in this format and decided to pass it on as both a pun and a linguistic treasure of how Hokkiens in Singapore romanise their language most often. Generally, I've seen these sorts of romanisations...

Re: Is Hokkien A Living Language?

Hi all, Many seem to be under the illusion that most people in Singapore do/did speak Hokkien, however this is not the case. There is the very very large Malay minority as well as the sizable Tamil minority and the minor Bengali minority (with other Indic languages trailing at the end), and the one ...

Re: A Separate Cantonese Republic???

If it's so important to revive cultures, why not import Gaels from the British Isles and Ireland to Iberia, Germanic peoples to France, Indo-Iranians to Turkey and Palestine? Better yet, why not find DNA of a proto-Indo-European person and clone them? That way, we can make a whole population for Lit...
