Foochow Dialect

The common comment from those who heard 
spoken Foochow Dialect 
" Are they arguing or quarrelling?"

Here is one quite out of the ordinary!
Share if you know the dialect

Somebody asked: How to call 'a river' in your dialect?
I replied: Ore
She repeated: How do you say 'river' in Foochow?
I said: Ore
Quite disappointed, she asked again: How do you call prawns in the sea?
I said: Ha
She repeated: How to call?
I said: Ha
Desperately, she asked again: Then, how do you call the ducks in the river?
I said: ark (lower sound)
She repeated: How?
I said: ark (lower sound)
She looked at me sympathetically, and said: You look good, so unfortunate to be dumb!
