Tense

Posted in people,term by Indosandi on May 6, 2012

To say Indonesian language (bahasa) doesn’t have tenses is not true. Definitely, we have ways to express time frame in bahasa. However, if you are native english then you will think that bahasa is weird in terms of tenses. More extreme case, probably native english will just simply say no tenses at all in bahasa.

Why is that like that?

The main reason is we do not change verb in order to express time specific. For example, the past form of  ‘go’ is ‘went’. That is not the case in bahasa. “Go” and “went” are one word that is “pergi”. Whether we say it now or yesterday, it make no difference at all. Now, do you understand?

It give rise another question. How do people know if they talk about now or past. Well, for ordinary conversation, we can simply know it by context. For case of writing, then we need to be specific by using adverb of time. Adverb of time is enough to give description about the happening event.

 

Alright,…enough for now since I am sleepy

The first thing in my mind about Rianti is BEAUTIFULL

No one doubt that She has different beauty that other actress. Rianti become famous because She become MTV VJ, model, advertising, Video Clip model, and movie star that make her more famous.

One of the famous movie starred by Her is ayat-ayat cinta. Sadly, I have to honest that ayat-ayat cinta is not good movie for me, but it become very great movie in my eyes just because Rianti played on that movie. Just enough Rianti to make it very good. Just Stand in front of camera is very great, moreover if she interact or do some acting…

Ok, I am the big fans of rianti

Rianti…oh….Rianti

When you will marry me?

SERVANT(housekeeper)

I think it is common, if one family has a servant for housekeeping in Indonesia. The fact that we have high population and it could low our GDP. So, only few people have high quality of life, and the other have low quality of life. Peoples who have low quality of life will work anything that support him to survive, one of them is become servant.

TRASH

I just don’t understand why I often saw many people in Indonesia throw trash anywhere they like. I don’t think they fell guilty about throw trash anywhere. Their faces don’t show emotion of guilty or regretful.

Well, not all Indonesian are like that, many people are responsible and discipline anyway. I believe the reason of case above is about rule and regulation. There is no strict rule and regulation about throwing trash anywhere. Even there is written regulation about that, the enforcement cannot be done continuously. I think this is fundamental reason of case above.

If this condition cannot be stop, it will become culture of Indonesia people. Other country will think that Indonesia is dirty or not clean country. Well, it is reasonable, to change this habit for better life of our next generation.

I hope future will be better

Indonesia is a country which has rich culture. Each province or region bears their own culture. So there are many local languages beside national language.

It is very common if people in Indonesia are able to speak national language and their local language. Sometime there is a joke that come from one local languages, so when person tell that joke, the only ones can understand are the people that come from same region. The others cannot understand that joke.

There are many local languages in Indonesia. Each language is very complicated and has theirs own structure. Furthermore, in each language lies wisdoms and story about life. So there are many wisdom and stories in Indonesia.

I just want to tell you that Indonesia has very rich wisdoms and stories.

I am not sure about what is English translation of word dukun?.

It is like the person who has the capability of doing mystic stuff.

In the modern world, in which our daily life has been greatly influenced by science, the word “dukun” has pejorative meaning. Because many people don’t believe in “dukun”, so they think “dukun” is just the person who deceive in order to get live.
