Well, Hokkien is not my native language and I don’t know how accurate the above really is. If it is, it is pretty cool but I can’t tell because I don’t know enough. I am though, very fluent with its truly harsh and crude curse words.
I do at least know that the above are not bad, curse words. The word “tin” there refers to a metal container used for storing biscuits.
But I digress.
What I initially wanted to say was that Hokkien, one of the Chinese dialects used in Asia comes with 5 to 7 tones. Which means one word can be said in 5 to 9 different ways.
Good luck figuring the tones out if you are tone deaf. Here’s to a week of your kong filled with love!
