vijayjohn - Bahasa Indonesia

Postby vijayjohn » 2018-03-11, 17:35

I thought I'd finally start a personal thread in this forum to help myself review vocabulary (and maybe keep track of errors I'm making).

if = kalau
when? = kapan?
What about this one? = Kalau ini bagaimana?
Why?/What did you say? = Kenapa?
which one = yang mana
to pay = (mem)bayar
meaning = erti
to understand = mengerti
I wish to order some... = Saya pesan...
Please let me have a look at that. = Coba lihat itu.
to accompany, go along = ikut
to ride, ascend = naik
to come down, disembark = turun
to begin = mulai
to run, flee = lari
to put, place = taruh
to carry = bawa
clever = cerdik
to leave, depart = berangkat
to cook = masak

Hi Vijay, glad to see the enthusiasm of foreigners learning Indonesian! (It's nice to see you learn another Austronesian language other than Filipino as well :lol: ) I will provide some help for you as well, if you don't mind.

What about this one? = Kalau (yang) ini bagaimana? (yang acts as an intensifier, you can exclude it)
meaning = erti/arti (arti is only used in Indonesian, elsewhere (in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei) it is erti)
I wish/would like to order some... = Saya (mau) pesan... (also an intensifier, can be excluded)
Have/Take a look at that. = Coba lihat itu. (lit. Try looking at that.)
to follow, accompany, go along = ikut
to come down, disembark, descend = turun
to begin, start = mulai
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ خَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافُ أَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَأَلْوَانِكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِلْعَالِمِينَ۝
"And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge." (Ar-Rum: 22)

Jika saya salah, mohon diperbaiki. If I make some mistake(s), please correct me.
Forever indebted to Robert A. Blust for his contributions to Austronesian linguistics

Thanks, I appreciate it! I actually started learning Indonesian a long time ago, when I was little. It is definitely the first Austronesian language I ever studied, long before I tried anything with Tagalog, really.

(sleeping) is (my favorite pastime activity) = ialah/merupakan

activity = Malay (ms) aktiviti Indonesian (id) aktivitas

pastime = Malay (ms) masa lapang Indonesian (id) rekreasi :?:

my = -ku, e.g. my favorite = kegemaranku

Travelling gives me back my sanity = Berjalan-jalan mengembalikan kewarasanku (better translation than Perjalanan memulangkan kewaresanku)

berjalan-jalan (or, more often, simply travel in Malaysia) = going to some places for the purpose of tourism/sightseeing

mengembalikan = give me back, return (especially something abstract)

memulangkan - similar but not used with abstract things like sanity

I am so sad = saya sangat sedih (not saya sedih sekali?)

to see everyone's happy = melihat semua orang gembira (not *melihat bahwa semuanya senang. Is melihat bahwa semua orang senang also possible in Indonesian?)

EDIT: Some new vocabulary from Easy Malay, CultureTalk Malaysia (first passage), Easy Indonesian, CultureTalk Indonesia (first transcript), and GLOSS, respectively:

to watch = menyaksikan (from saksi!)
education = pendidikan
to be located = berada
interviewer = pewawancara
interview = wawancara
training, exercise, activity = latihan
service = layanan

heavy rain, downpour = hujan lebat'
