Cantonese is a widely spoken dialect of Chinese, especially in the former British colony of Hong Kong and by the ethnic minorities in other countries.

While Cantonese speakers do read and write in formally written Mandarin Chinese characters, the spoken languages of both dialects are, for most purposes, mutually unintelligible and will require translation. While the Chinese consider that they only have a single language, there are major regional dialectal differences that would be considered to be separate languages in other parts of the world. In many cases the regional dialects are not clearly regionalised but vary gradually across a region. Thus linguists can identify anywhere between seven and seventeen separate Chinese languages where the speakers of different dialects are mutually unintelligible.

Some of the phrases in the list cannot be translated from English to Cantonese.
