What does 盡吐 mean?

Postby Aurelio » Fri May 07, 2004 11:06 pm

Dear all,

Could somebody tell me what 盡吐 (as in 一生首次盡吐心聲) means and how it's pronounced? Is this a Cantonese expression only?

Thanks in advance! Oh, and for those who recognized the quote, yes - I do love Leslie Cheung songs ;-).

Best regards,
Aurelio

OK, question has been answered. Wasn't aware that there's a 吐 tou that means "to say, to pour out" which makes perfect sense in this context ("to spit" or "to vomit" didn't really ;-) ).

Regards,
Aurelio
