قوي و جداً

In Egyptian 'amia, what's the difference between جداً and قوي?  When do you use one and when do you use the other?

Thanks for the feedback :-)


Oh and yes, I understand that قوي is pronounced as اوي.  The books I've been using/reading include the ق in spelling, but also says that it is silenced. 


Thanks again.

It's same meanz, both meaning " too much "

We use both of them to express the same meaning. 

تعبان قوي = تعبان جدًا = تعبان على الآخر = تعبان خالص = تعبان موت 

All are Egyptian slang

We don't say قوي in dialect, we say it اوي in Egypt. You can say تعبان جدا او تعبان اوي.

I guess you know that we spell the ق as if it's أ

Hello, about your last sentence, it could be : تعبان جدا / I am too tired.
