Hi Kman!
Sorry that nobody has responded to you.
I'll try with my knowledge:

Your tengah, dengan and lengan sounded like *tenggah, *denggan and *lenggan. Conversely, your memenggal sounded like *memengal. 8-)
-ng- = like in singer, -ngg- = like in finger

Your kecil sounded like *kesil. It should be like kechil.
C is always pronounced like English CH.

NY in Malay/Indonesian sounds like Spanish Ñ.

HTH! Keep up the good work! :D
Ini tandatanganku.

Sama seperti komen diatas. Cuma anda perlu tahu membezakan sebutan e=ei (hair) dan e=3 (bird). Ini menjadi semakin rumit sebab tiada kamus yang boleh tolong anda perbetulkan sebutan huruf e ini. :evil:
