I'm just wondering how to say 'what's the difference between X and X?' in Cantonese

Any help (Jyutping or characters!) would be really appreciated! Thanks!

what's the difference between X and Y

Cantonese:

"(X) 同 (Y) 有乜嘢唔同" [(X) tung4 (Y) jau5 me1 je5 m4 tung4]

"(X) 同 (Y) 有乜嘢分別" [(X) tung4 (Y) jau5 me1 je5 fan1 bit6]

Mandarin:

"(X) 跟 (Y) 有甚麼不同" [(X) gen1 (Y) you3 shen2 me5 bu4 tong2]

"(X) 跟 (Y) 有甚麼分別" [(X) gen1 (Y) you3 shen2 me5 fen1 bie2]

  • I think the proper pronunciation of 乜嘢 is "mat1 je5", though when it spoken quickly it sounds like "me1 je5". – user102008 Apr 14 at 0:53
