    Anh means an older person speaking to a younger person. Vietnamese uses different words to denote the social position (age) of the person. Be=infant, Cong=child, Em=younger than, Anh=older than, Ba=respected or revered person, Ong=old and revered person.

    Of course, context plays a large role in Vietnamese.

    Anh xin loi usually means a man is saying "I am sorry." I know this phrase well. I'm married to a Viet woman so I usually add Ba Xa to the end of it. lol

    U.S. troops used the term xin loi ("sin loi") as a flippant, disrespectful retort. As in "Sin Loi, my boy" . . . bang, bang, bang. VIet Nam has no profane words as in U.S. English. Thus, 'Sin Loi" to U.S. troops truly meant "Tough Sh*t" or "Fu*k you, as*hole". It was not the nicest thing to say.
