I am trying to learn Cantonese.
I want to be able to say (speak, not write) after a meal:
I am full.
Which I could translate directory to:
Ngo5 hai6 baau2
But, my local (student in HK) friend says this is incorrect and that the following is preferred:
Ngo5 hou2 baau2
Which I would read as
I very full
Sentences like this come up quite often, where sometimes I need to say the verb hai6, or sometimes a "degree" such as hou2 and additionally gei(unsure of tone or meaning) has been suggested.
What is the correct structure of a sentence where you want to tell somebody your current state of being?
