Proper Cantonese word list

Postby jilang » Tue Dec 19, 2006 11:40 am

Hi everybody

I'm not fluent in Cantonese but I have been learning some basic Cantonese from people I meet. People on this forum say that people are changing word sounds such as:

ngoh - oh
nei - lei

I think I am being taught the Cantonese that has been changed from the original and I would like to learn the proper Cantonese so if anybody knows words that have been changed from the original could they please list the changed and unchanged words on this topic to help others?

Thank you and I hope you contribute!

Currently:

ngoh - oh
ngaan jeng - aan jeng
nei - lei
