    There's quite an easy way to check if something in Chinese/ any language really means close to what you think it means.

    Whack it in google images and see what comes up. If the pictures match what you think the meaning is, its likely to be roughly right.

    These characters:
    耳光

    Almost certainly mean something close to slap, because all the pictures are of people getting slapped.

    These characters

    贱人

    Well the results are all over the place.

    Put them together

    贱人耳光

    And, well, you get far fewer slap images than the first pair of characters.

    Some there's probably a bit of truth to it, but the 4 characters together probably don't mean bitch slap.

    Probably because I search on porntube.

    I just typed "Bitch Slap" into Google Translator and those are what came up.
    Now the term "bitch" in those characters may be what is bringing up porn.
    But still. The Leung Ting Bitch Slap form is one of the only defenses against Alimony.

    When I started learning Cantonese words and phrases the first thing I had to completely dump was my presumption that computers do a good job of translating phrases between Chinese and English.

    Nope, not quite there yet.

    Honestly, I like "slut slap to the face" better.
