重庆话第一棵 Chongqing dialect lesson one

Posted by dave__m May 7, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

重庆人不用说‘可以’。 他们总是用说‘yao4 dei1’。

我不知道对的汉字。如果你们知道请教我们!

对话:

在饭店,A:服务员 B:顾客

A:你好,你们要吃什么?

B:我想吃串串火锅。

A:好。yao4不yao4dei1吃辣?

B:yao4dei1!

Translation:

In Chongqing people don't say "keyi" but "yaodei" instead.

I'm not sure what characters are used, if somebody would like to let us know i would be very interested to know. Perhaps it's the same as 'keyi' (可以). 

Yao4dei1 seems to me to be used as a straight substitution for keyi. Also, on a recent trip to Chengdu I heard plenty of "yaodei yaodei yaodei" so I guess this must be standard Sichuan dialect. 

Looking forward to some feedback dudes...
