Other comments: In Cantonese, the compound numerals 21 to 29, 31 to 39... 91 to 99, have two formsː a normal form and a fast form. The Cantonese has nine tones, six of regular length, and three for so-called 'short syllables, as written with one digit number. The nine tones areː (1) 55, (2) 35, (3) 33, (4) 21, (5) 23, (6) 22, (7) 5,

(8) 3, (9) 2.  ( The short syllables are those with short vowels which end in p, t or k

with one digit number 2, 3, 5 )
