3 Bahasa Indonesia in Seven Days Face it whether you are in Indonesia for one week or for 10 years, it is not only polite and useful to know a little of the language, in many cases, it is outright necessary. If you don't want to be trapped at the Hotel Borobudur or restricted to traveling with a translator, you need to be able to communicate with that cheerful, friendly, curious populace out there. This booklet provides one approach to learning a very basic level of the Indonesian language, Bahasa Indonesia, with no strain. I have yet to encounter a structured, functional approach to learning Bahasa Indonesia. Phrase books confront the linguistic novice with a barrage of special purpose phrases ( Is the play a comedy or a tragedy? ). They are often badly organized into social situations (going to the market, at customs) where you are likely to have neither the time nor the inclination to be fumbling around with a silly little phrase book even if you did bring it with you, which is highly improbable. With these books, you can either memorize several hundred phrases that may or may not have an application. Or you can keep the book in your pocket and hope that your fingers are fast enough to find the phrase for turn left here before the taxi takes you completely out of town in a straight line. Grammar books and dictionaries, although fine for a long-term study of the language, are even more of a hindrance in taxis and at the supermarket checkout. Language tapes also have their place in learning to communicate but this approach requires time and effort to achieve practical results. What is required for the short-term visitor and even for the newly arrived longer-term expatriates is a list of common, useful and necessary words and phrases grouped into bite-sized quantities so the most important ones can be learned and used first. The most useful phrase book I have found is Indonesian Words and Phrases by the American Women's Association. It provides some very important basic concepts and I recommend it highly but no one wants to memorize an entire book the first day in a new country. The following lists of words, organized by day, should help you to get through your first week while you are making plans for more extensive language training. Optional words in the following vocabulary tables are provided in square brackets and correspond between columns (for example, [pagi siang sore malam] [morning day afternoon evening]; pagi is morning, etc.). Fill-in-the-blank words (...) may be substituted from any handy phrase book or the word list in Appendix 3.. The appendices include a guide to pronunciation, help with finding words in the dictionary and a short essential word list. Page 2
4 Day 1. Being Polite The first priority in Indonesia, believe it or not, is being polite. Not getting Selamat [pagi siang sore the job done, getting to malam]. where you are going or Terima kasih. getting the correct change. The general wisdom that Ya. even a few polite words will return much appreciation is usually true. On the Tidak. Apa kabar? other hand, unkind or loud words in any language will instantly turn you into an Saya tidak bisa bahasa Indonesia. invisible being. Any conversation beyond the vocabulary here assumes that you know more about the Selamat [jalan tinggal]. language than you actually Kembali. do. This may put you on the receiving end of a long Silakan[ duduk masuk]. monologue to which you are expected to nod and make the occasional non-committal response. Vocabulary Day 1. Good [morning day afternoon evening]. Thank-you. Yes. (often means no) No. How are you? What s new? Baik, dan [Bapak Ibu]? Fine, and you? (to man woman) I don't speak Indonesian. (This will be painfully obvious to any Indonesian, but it's a polite way to fill in those awkward moments.) Good-bye. (to person leaving to person staying) You re welcome. Please [sit down come in]. Page 3
5 Day 2. The Taxi Vocabulary Day 2. Ke [kiri kanan]. [terus lurus] [Rumah Gedung Jalan] [ini itu]. Ke mana? Saya mau ke... Saya tidak tahu. Di [sini sana]. Kiri, kanan? [Berhenti! Stop!] Salah. Saya mau pulang. To the [left right]. straight ahead. [This That] [house building street]. Where are you going? (Also a common polite greeting.) I am going to... (pick a place) I don't know. (This will likely be obvious to the driver but may encourage him to find directions elsewhere.) [Here There]. (Not really useful, but it's something to say while you're pointing at the house.) Left or right? (Drivers often ask this when approaching a street they assured you they grew up on.) Stop! (Often necessary) Wrong. I want to go home. By your second day, still fuzzy with jet-lag, your employers expect you to at least show up at the office to meet a few people. If you're not here to work, by now you should be bored enough with the hotel facilities (even if it is the Borobudur) to want to see a little of the town. The most effective way of getting around town is in the back of a shiny Mercedes with an English-speaking, hard-nosed, Jakarta-born driver. If you don't happen to have both of these handy, flag down the nearest taxi after you have memorized the accompanying vocabulary. Street names and addresses are rarely sufficient to get you where you are going in Jakarta unless you are going to a very well known building, hotel or shopping center. Remember to learn the local pronunciation of your hotel or street, you may need it to get back home. Many place and street names are derived from English or other languages, but sometimes they are not pronounced as you would expect. For example, the Hotel Orchid is pronounced Ortchid and Golf usually has two syllables (Golef). The best way of giving directions in a taxi is to mention the neighborhood (Kebayoran Baru, Blok M, Jalan Thamrin, Kemang, Pondok Indah etc.) and the street. If there are any tricky turns before you get there, you may want to mention that, too. Don't fall asleep on the ride. Lacking specific instructions, drivers often take you in circles. Page 4
6 Day 3. More Politeness On your third day, you are beginning to get used to the new time-zone, the smells and the food. This is about the time that you realize you're not in Kansas any more and you left Toto back home. Indonesians are very good at helping you get over culture shock. They like to chat and find out about people and to tell you about themselves. You will be stopped on the street and asked your age, name and address. Don t take it too seriously and you don t have to give a straight answer. These are simply polite questions, Where are you going? Over there., ke sana is good enough. Vocabulary Day 3. Dari mana? Saya dari Kanada. Sudah lama di [Indonesia sini]? Saya sudah dua [hari minggu] di [Indonesia sini]. Sudah kawin? Where are you from? (For some reason, Indonesians are very good at spotting foreigners.) I am from Canada. Have you been [in Indonesia here] very long? (Again, a polite question, but you are really being asked how long you have been here.) I have been [in Indonesia here] for two [days months] already. Are you already married? (Another polite question, not often a pick-up line.) Sudah punya anak? Do you have any children? (a popular topic) [Sudah Belum]. Di mana...? Berapa umurnya? Berapa umurnya? Tinggal dimana? [Already Not yet]. Where is...? (fill in a place name) How old are you? How old are you? (Another common, polite question.) Where do you live? Page 5
7 Numbers are handy to know, but most often prices are written on paper or shown on a cash-register or on a calculator. On your fourth day you are not ready to bargain for antiques on Jalan Surabaya! When spoken, prices are usually in thousands and hundreds (for example Rp. 10,500 is ten thousand, five hundred). Understanding numbers when spoken takes some practice. Another perplexity is that when discussing prices, often the units are omitted. If a figurine is quoted to you as Enam (six) and you don't know for certain whether they are talking about six thousand or six million, you probably shouldn't be shopping there. The basic one-to-nine numbers are handy for spelling out addresses and giving shoe sizes. These Day 4. Numbers Vocabulary Day 4. [nol kosong] are usually spelled out as in 147 (satu-empat-tujuh for one-four-seven). Don't worry about the hundreds and thousands, it's only your fourth day. An Australian mate of ours managed to successfully bargain for goods in Bali using only the numbers from one to five. This approach is not recommended. satu dua tiga empat lima enam tujuh delapan sembilan sepuluh sebelas, duabelas tigabelas,... zero one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven, twelve, thirteen,... dua puluh, tiga puluh,... twenty, thirty,... dua puluh lima twenty five seratus, dua ratus,... one hundred, two hundred,... seribu, dua ribu,... one thousand, two thousand.... sejuta, dua juta,... one million, two million, setengah... and a half Page 6
8 For the next three days, you should build a vocabulary that is important to your daily existence. If you spend a lot of time in restaurants, learn the names of food. If you like shopping for local handicrafts, learn their names and substitute into the sentences here. Learn at least five new nouns and five new verbs that are useful to you. These phrases aren't guaranteed get you a better room at the Wisma Delima, for that you need a teacher or more time with a phrase book. These phrases, though will ensure that you won't go hungry on your fifth day. Day 5. Simple Sentences Saya mau... (insert noun or verb, for example: Saya mau bir. Saya mau minum.) Saya minta... (insert noun or verb) Ada...? (insert noun) Di mana saya bisa beli...? (insert noun) Saya suka... (insert noun or verb) Saya mau beli... (insert noun) Vocabulary Day 5. Berapa [ini itu]? Berapa? I want... (noun to verb) for example, I want beer. I want to drink. I would like... (noun to verb) Do you have any... (noun)? Where can I buy... (noun)? I like... (noun or verb). I want to buy... (noun) How much is [this that]? How [much many]? Before heading out for the day, memorize a couple of new words you will need to know for the day s activities. Write them down and give youself a quiz. Bring the paper you wrote them down on. You should have noticed by now that many foreign, especially English, words are commonly used by Indonesians: hotel, taxi, film, bank, photocopy, photo, beer, restaurant, McDonald's and toilet will likely be understood. Be on the lookout for these words in advertisements and other signs. It's an easy way to add to your vocabulary. A more extensive list of these similar words is provided on the next page. Page 7
9 You can learn words much faster if you make use of the 190 million eager and willing bahasa Indonesia teachers at your disposal. Finding out the word for shoe is a lot easier than more abstract concepts such as good and evil but at this stage you are still trying to become functional. Learn five more useful nouns and five more verbs Day 6. Asking Questions Vocabulary Day 6. Apa [ini itu]? Apa... dalam bahasa Indonesia? (substitute English word, which is handy only if the person to whom you are speaking knows more English than you know Indonesian.) Inggeris What is [this that]? What is... in Indonesian? [English England] from a reliable phrase book, dictionary, or the word lists in the Appendix. You should be at the stage now where you can teach someone a little English. Try it! The words in the following table are similar in both English and bahasa Indonesia. They may not be the most precise pronunciation and spelling but they will be understood by most people. airport apple athlete baby baggage bank bar beer bell bottle bus camera cashier cassette cherry chocolate Coca-cola coffee coin computer consultant deoderant diskette doctor donut dry cleaning electricity film football glass guitar hamburger hello ice ice cream kilometer Similar Words in Both Languages kiosk mall massage meter monument museum music number office OK oven paper clip pen pencil pension photo photocopy pizza police radio restaurant roast beef salad same school sex shopping staple steak stop stop strawberry supermarket taxi tea telephone Page 8 tennis ticket to park toilet TV university video
10 Day 7. Leftovers On your day of rest, you can learn some more handy words and phrases that don't fit into any of the other categories. If you can keep up with the pace, within one week you will be more functional than the average expat is after two months of slaving over phrase and grammar books. Have fun and don't forget to practice. Vocabulary Day 7. Tidak apa-apa. Maaf. Permisi. Hati-hati! Awas! [Jam pukul] berapa? [Jam Pukul]... It doesn't matter. (Literally means nothing. Handy when someone is apologizing profusely.) I am sorry. (If you want to apologize profusely.) Excuse me. (To get someone to move out of the way or to get someone's attention.) Careful Watch out! [What time is it? At what time?] [At... o'clock. It is... o'clock] (insert number) Tolong, bawa... Please bring me the... (insert noun). Satu lagi. Tambah lagi? Habis. Minta bon. One more. (works well for beers.) Do you want more? Finished. Bill, please. Page 9
11 Appendix 1. Guide to Pronunciation It's not very difficult to pronounce bahasa Indonesia in a way that it's understood by even those who never come into contact with foreigners. Remember to keep it simple. Certain sounds we use in English and European languages do not occur in Indonesian at all. Unfortunately, those of us who have grappled with French, Spanish and German are often tempted to pronounce the word as it may sound in another language. For example, selamat datang ( welcome ) does not rhyme with the well-known orange-like juice that accompanied astronauts into space. It also is pronounced with only about four discernible syllables, not five. With this simple guide, the novice speaker of Indonesian should be able to avoid most of the traps of basic communication. RULES 1. Most letters have only one pronunciation thereby avoiding the problems of English in which we are forced to memorize when an a is long (fall), short (fat), or some other manifestation (fate). That's one reason the bahasa Indonesia approximations to foreign words often appear strange at first sight bureau becomes biro but then you realize the Indonesian spelling is much more logical. 2. The only letter that has two distinct pronounciations is e. Usually it is pronounced as an uh sound, like a in sofa. Sometimes it takes on an ay sound like a in make. Common words using the ay sound are besok (tomorrow), merah (red) and restoran. Sometimes, the e is hardly pronounced (selamat becomes slamat). 3. One of the main pitfall in pronunciation is the use of the letter c in bahasa Indonesia. The letter c is always pronounced as ch in check. Another hazard is that ngg is a very different sound from ng. See the Pronunciation Guide below for more details. 4. There is a slight accented syllable that is either the last or next to last depending upon which book you believe. In my experience, Jakartans try to put the emphasis on the last syllable. For example, asking for em-ping' will likely get you a bowl of crispy chips. Asking, on the other hand, for em'-ping will get you a blank stare. When in doubt, try to pronounce the word monotonically no emphasis is better than a wrong one. 5. A k at the end of a word is pronounced as a glottal stop and if you don't know what that is, you're better off ignoring the terminating k altogether. The honorific Pak ( Mister or Father ) sounds altogether unpleasant when pronounced like pack, pock, or the Bonanza standard Pa. In actual fact, it's more like the sound you make when trying to blow a floating feather in someone else's direction. 6. A double a as in maaf ( excuse me ) is pronounced with a slight glottal stop between the vowels. You can get away with a slight pause (like ma af) but never simply maf. 7. In Bahasa Indonesia, some consonants ( b, p, t, d, v ) have much softer sounds. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between b and d, p and t, etc. Page 10
12 PRONUNCIATION GUIDE Vowels Spelling Example Description a apa always a long a as in father (never bad or bang ) e bécak like a in make e ke, empat like a in sofa i pagi, itu like ee in see but shorter (never like hit or hike ) o kopi like aw in law, but shorter u susu like oo in food, but shorter Diphthongs Spelling Example Description ai pandai somewhere between pay and pie au tembakau like ow in now oi amboi like oy in boy oe Soeharto old spelling, still used in names, pronounced as oo in food ua uang like wa in Walla-walla, Washington Consonants (the easy part) Spelling Example Description b bawah same as b in bungle but spoken more softly. At the end of a word may be more of a soft p. c bicara similar to ch in church d duduk like d in bed. At the end of a word may sound more like a soft t dj djarum old spelling still used in names, pronounced like j in jump f foto like f in fan g garpu like g in dog h hari similar to h in hope j jalan like j in jump j djaja old spelling still used in names, like y in yard. Look for other old spelling clues in the name (like oe, dj) Page 11
13 Consonants (continued) Spelling Example Description k kabar like k in kite when not at the end of a word. At the end of a word, pronounced like a soft g or glottal stop. kh akhir like clearing your throat or German ach l lima similar to l in like m minta like m in main n nama like n in noon ny nyamuk like ny in canyon ng dengan like ng in singer (not finger, that requires ngg) ngg tunggu like ng in finger (not singer ) p pukul similar to p in pool but without the puff of air q is not used much in Indonesian words but does come up in Arabic words used in Indonesia (for example,, Istiqlal). When it occurs, qu is pronounced as qu in queen. r kiri like a softly trilled Scottish or German r. Never a hard American, Australian or Canadian r. s selamat similar to s in seven t tujuh like t in let but without the plosive quality (it's sometimes difficult to differentiate between spoken t, p and d) tj Tjoakroaminoto old spelling still used in names, pronounced like ch in church v visa rarely used, like v in visa but softer w awas between w in wane and v in vane x not used. In foreign words, often replaced with ks as in taksi. y yang like y in you z zat like z in zone, often replaced with, and pronounced like s Page 12
14 APPENDIX 2. How to Find Words in the Dictionary Unlike most words in the English language, the roots of many words in Indonesian can be obscured by layers of prefixes and suffixes. Applying a few simple rules will save hours of searching through dictionaries. This is not a review of months of grammar study required to understand the real meaning of these modifications to the root but a simple guide to finding the word in the first place. Prefix Example Root Explanation bel belajar ajar Drop the bel ber berada ada Drop the ber unless the root begins with r (for example, berasa comes from rasa not asa) be bepergian pergi Drop the be di ditutup tutup Drop the di ke kerajinan rajin Drop the ke me, pe See Table A-2 per..an pertanian tani Drop the per se sebulan bulan Drop the se ter terbuka buka Drop the ter Suffix Example Root Description -an besaran besar Drop the an -i menjauhi jauh Drop the i -kan memburukan buru Drop the kan -lah duduklah duduk Drop the lah -nya akhirnya akhir Drop the nya Note that some root words really do begin with what appear to be prefixes: belanja, pergi, beri, kepala, kelapa, etc. They are usually common words. When in doubt, look up the entire word first. Page 13
15 Table A-1. Determining the Root of me and pe Words Form Example Root To form root... me + l melatih latih drop me me + ma memasak masak drop me mematuhi patuhi drop mem, add p me + mb membuat buat drop mem me + mf memfokuskan fokus drop mem me + mp memproduksi produksi drop mem me + mper memperhalus halus drop memper me + na menamai nama drop me menanamkan tanam drop men, add t me + nc mencari cari drop men me + nd mendatangkan datang drop men me + nga mengalahkan kalah drop meng add k mengambil ambil drop meng menganga nganga drop me me + nge mengelakkan elak drop meng mengetik tik drop menge me + ngg menggarap garap drop meng me + ngh mengharap harap drop meng me + ngi mengikat ikat drop meng me + ngkh mengkhwatirkan khwatir drop meng me + ngo mengolah olah drop meng me + ngu mengukur ukur drop meng me + nj menjatuhkan jatuh drop men me + nsy mensyratkan syrat drop men me + ny menyatakan nyata drop me menyatukan satu drop meny add s me + r meramaikan ramai drop me me + y meyakinkan yakin drop me Page 14
16 Appendix 3: Word List Some grammatical notes: 1. The adjective normally comes after the noun or pronoun, as in kamar tidur or bed (sleeping) room ). Possessive pronouns come last, as in kamar tidur saya or my bedroom ). 2. Plurals are formed by doubling the noun (as in anak-anak or children ). 3. Verbs have no tenses or declinations to worry about. 4. The verb to be is generally left out. 5. There are generally no articles ( a, the ) although there is a complex set of substitutes relating to the form of the object (seorang laki-laki is a man ; sebuah mobil is a car). Definiteness of nouns is achieved by adding -nya to the end of a word (uangnya is the money ). 6. Personal pronouns ( I, you, we ) are somewhat problematic. There is a range of formality which needs to be studied to be appreciated. In general, you can t go too far wrong by referring to all men as bapak and women as ibu. Also, proper names are often used as a substitute. Anda ( you ) and saya ( I ), although highly impersonal, are becoming more common. He, she and it are all dia. 7. The ay pronunciation of e is indicated in the word list as é. 8.
