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
