a few translations

Post by Diane » Fri Aug 15, 2003 4:18 am

I have a few translations to be translated. I have some possible translations/clues to the words for translations and hopefully they'll help. Hanzi and translations would be very helpful. Thanks :)

• gáo zík – (I think this one has something to deal with handling, doing business with someone)
• fúk zyù – as in “Ngo fúk zyù lei” (Sounds negative?)
• Sún Gíng – I heard this like in terms of “Sún Gíng Ló [Ló as in Man?]” - I’m pretty sure it’s an adjective!
• Lyún gáo páo – to make a mess I think?
• Gúi yíng – (I think this word was like an adjective to describe something strangely large/big…)

1.2 gu2 sik1 股息 divident
2. fuk6 zo2 nei5 服著你 (literal translation) admire you, but sometimes reciprocal, e.g. I admire you since I can never do or think the way you did, implies that the way you did or thought is too naive, simple, bad while common people would not do it, etc.
