Pronunciation

Postby lüijükünä » 2010-07-28, 15:03

Hi,

according to the audio material of my Indonesian course, the /l/ seems to be velarized, it even tends to be a nasalized [ũ]. Is this actually the standard way of pronunciation or rather a dialect?
Besides, do all the /k/s at the end of a syllable have to be pronounced as a glottal stop or are there some exceptions? E.g., why is “tidak” spoken as [ti'daʔ], but “senduk” as ['senduk]?

maybe i can help, but i don't understand the [ti'daʔ] part.
am not sure if anyone does, perhaps that's why there been no response.
tidak is spoken same as senduk.

Tidak and senduk are the same... Kakek, nenek, adik etc. are also the same...
Handuk on the other hand is pronounced with the K, all though my spelling may not be correct. AND it is a Dutch and Norwegian word.

I don't think the word senduk is still used in Indonesian. Maybe you've mistaken it with Malaysian Language. The correct word is sendok according to Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia (Grand Dictionary for Indonesian Language).

We pronounce tidak, kakak, kakek, nenek, etc with a glottal stop in the end. And we pronounce sendok, handuk, salak, sasak, anak, etc with a 'k' in the end of the words.
