    ちうて?

    This line from a manga is giving me trouble. This character is a samurai from Satsuma, so I'm guessing this is Kagoshima-ben. I don't know much about the dialect except what I got from google though :P

    Some dude complains about how he's eating and he says:

    薩州でん肉ばよか食うど
    戦場でんえのころ飯ちうて
    腹ば減ったら野犬をばひっつかまえ

    I read that ば and をば are used in place of を, and I guess でん is just a form of で, but what is ちうて?

    Hi mote  Glad to see you again~

    My guess is .... ちうて is similar to ちゅうて in Kansai dialect.

    To rephrase:

    薩摩の国ではでも よく肉を食べるが、
    戦場でも えのころ飯といって
    お腹が減ると、野犬をつかまえて

    Does the sentence continues like add some rice then cook or something?

    It doesn't make a big difference, but I think でん means でも (instead of では), so I edited.
