關你鬼事呀?

1 12 2008

“關你鬼事呀?”gwaan1nei5gwai2si6 is a colloquial expression frequently used by the new generation to express the meaning of “none of your business”. You say it when you are overly annoyed by somebody.

Say for example, your mum mutters to you all days long blaming that you always hang out and have fun but do not care about your studies. At one point, you feel really annoyed and to express your impatience, you say “關你鬼事呀?”. Of course, after you say so, you are going to have a big fight with your mum! XD

In the audio clip, you can hear the expression two times. The first time is spoken more slowly for you to distinguish the sounds and for the second time it is spoken with normal speed and with emotion. Try and practise it with your friends!!!
