i didn't know this kind of "Melayu pasar", actually. i was only referring to
indonesian spoken "as if it were a european language". i mean: indonesian
without expressions like "Yono ketinggalan bis" or "Sepeda sudah Yono beli"
and stuff like that. i know you know indonesian has a few "fremd"
grammatical structures that are not easily guessed and need be learned

Well, "broken" Indonesian (do you mean Melayu pasar?) saya punya bapak 'my father' I have father saya punya bapak punya kuda 'my father's horse' I have father have horse (as opposed to more standard bapak saya or bapakku; kuda bapak saya or kuda bapakku) <<< _________________________________________________________________ Chat with friends online, try MSN Messenger:
