For the Benefitment of the Gloriousness of Hakkaness Nations

Hi, and welcome to the latest installment of the wonderful and glorious world of Hakka-ness.

Today we will, as promised, look into the more flowery words in the Hakka Language, which we love so much. As Victor has suggested 'Da Ngong Siong', I shall go back to the roots of a few words so that you may understand Hakka-ness better.

Let the lesson begin;

Ngong ~ to depict a person of low mental capacity, whether at the particular moment or permenantly. For example; 'Tai Ngong' would mean you are no less than a big fool. Other forms of usage includes a certain L word inserted in between Tai and Ngong.

Ngiok ~ literally means weak. The word carries no other subliminal meaning, just weak.

Ngiet ~ that is to refer to something being temperately hot.

Ngiak ~ to depict boredom. For example; Ngia jak party NGIAK dau see gai, tee bai mm loi loh.

So to cap off this lesson we will try to put all the words into 1 string of words;

Ai tiau tai ngong jeen hae mm hiau gai woh. Ngiok dau see gan yoong ngee gai dung see du mm hiau. Ngiak see ngai loh ngia hang ga ngiet.
