If you haven’t caught up with the previous episodes of our series, Bahasa Indonesia words with dual meaning,
That word is . . . “Bulan.”
Let’s take a look at the following examples:
“Bulan depan, sekolah dia akan mengadakan kompetisi seni bagi semua murid.”
“Next month, his school will have an art competition for all the students.”
“Malam ini akan ada bulan purnama.”
“Tonight there will be a full moon.”
As you can see from the examples above, the word bulan has the same meaning as the English words “month” and “moon.”
For both meanings, the word is spelt and pronounced the same exact way, because of that it is really important for you to know the context where the word is used in conversations.
To see some more examples of how this word can be used, watch this video!
By now, we have already discussed a couple of other dual-meaning words including beruang, bisa, orang tua, apel, tinggal, lewat, pukul, halaman, and tahu. Check out those posts to improve your knowledge in vocabulary and become more fluent in Bahasa Indonesia!
