Cantonese Mini-Transcript: Star Wars / Clone Wars / Well Done!

“Cantonese is a difficult language to learn — not because of its sounds or syntax, but because it’s hard to find good learning resources”

Eldon

Well, let’s remedy that one mini-transcript at a time, as has been the custom established by Edwin and CanteHK!

The situation this time around is a high-ranking clone soldier (Rex?) speaking to Anakin and Ahsoka after the first battle of the movie.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)

做得好呀,Skywalker將軍!你都係呀,小妹妹
jou dak hou a,Skywalker jeung gwan!nei dou hai a,siu mui mui
[To Anakin] Well done, General Skywalker! [To Asoka] And you too, little Miss Thang — you weren’t so bad either 😛 .

Note: I’ve never seen Star Wars: Clone Wars in English, so…I don’t know what the original lines were. These are my re-translation back into English from Cantonese.

    Just wondering – why Cantonese?

    Sorry for being thick, but did you learn Mandarin already or something?

    I think he set out to learn Mandarin first but preferred Cantonese over Mandarin, so decided to learn it instead.

    唔使客氣.

    你同埋Milan既廣東話都講得好正. 見到有外國人肯學廣東話,我真系好開心. 因為就算響中國廣東,都好少外地人想學廣東話. 你地好犀利! 繼續努力喔!
