  • new words in bahasa

    i have just know the meaning of these indonesian words 'mangkus' and 'sangkil' .. even tho am indonesian too
    'mangkus' means effective and 'sangkil' means efficient....

    so next time you read that words in some of indonesian letters or billboard ... you'll understand it .. :-)

    I think I can guess as to why these two words are not used.

      Pengar for mabok (drunk).
      Words can inspire, thoughts can provoke, but only action can get you closer to your dreams.

        'pengar'? ... that is a new one for me.. do you say the the 'e' like in 'enak' or the 'pesing' ?

        pengar cinta ? mabuk cinta

              I dont know. I read it in the Indonesian subtitle movie. "Dia lagi pengar". Explaining someone who is under drugs and alcohol influence. Weird word.

                  This is from Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia:

                  pe·ngar a berasa agak pening (setelah bangun dr tidur yg tidak nyenyak, habis mabuk, dsb)

                    mang·kus a mustajab; mujarab; manjur; berhasil guna

                    sang·kil v 1 sampai: perahu kecil itu -- dng selamat ke tempat tujuan; 2 kena; mengenai: bidikannya tepat -- sasaran; 3 berdaya guna; efisien


                    I heard mangkus before, but never heard of pengar and sangkil.........

                      i just wonder who was the one who created those words??? what triggers them to approve that word to have certain meaning?
                      ehm, maybe like how the word 'twerking' was created ?

                          I remember sangkil and mangkus, JS Badudu was promoting them instead of efektif and efisien. It's interesting that these words are still alive.
