每日一字:tell vs say

Part II 【Tell 話畀 vs Say 話】

「佢話畀我聽佢好開心。」
用呢句講英文
最適合係用個意思係「話畀」嘅 tell
He told me he’s very happy.
而請留意
Tell 已經有「畀」嘅意思
所以唔需要喺佢後面再加 to
而走去將佢變成
He told to me he’s very happy.
個 to 係絕對唔需要嘅

「佢話佢好眼瞓。」
因為喺「話」後面冇「畀我聽」
所以如果用英文去表達呢句
最適合就係用只係解「話」嘅 say
He said he’s sleepy.

咁如果加埋「畀我聽」喺英文裡面
變成「佢話畀我聽佢好眼瞓。」又得唔得呀?
得!不過因為 say 本身冇「畀」嘅意思
所以你要加番個 to:
He said to me he’s sleepy.
英文人就直接用解「話畀」嘅 tell
去慳番一個字:
He told me he’s sleepy.
