Ways of saying "We're better than you" in Cantonese?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, this is my first post here so I'm sorry if I do anything wrong :wink:

I need to know how to write "We're better than you" in Cantonese. My guess was:


However, I also need it to sound kind of rude and bitchy, and I was under the impression that using "bei" to mean "compared with" had more of a formal tone to it.

I asked my Cantonese friend and he said:

我哋好gwo你哋 (< also, what character is used for "gwo"?)

But how would you write or say this if you were trying to sound nasty?

Thank you for any help you can give me!

Thank you very much!

I'm still a beginner though, so could I ask would "多多声" in that sense mean "better reputation"? Also I'm not sure what you mean by "For added rudeness: 9" (though i'm guessing you're referring to the tone number)?
