Last week, we learned about the dual-meaning word tahu, and today, we will be sharing with you more words with dual meanings in Bahasa Indonesia!
We hope that through learning these dual-meaning words, you can improve your knowledge and vocabulary
and become more fluent in speaking the language.
Today’s word is . . . “Halaman.”
Let’s take a look at the following example:
“Aku akan main bulu tangkis di halaman depan rumahku.”
“I am going to play badminton in the front yard of my house.”
“Aku sudah baca buku ini sampai halaman 30.”
“I have already read this book until page 30.”
As you can see from the example above, the word halaman can mean both “yard” and “page.” For both meanings, the word is spelt and pronounced the exact same way, so how do you know which meaning of the word is being used in a conversation?
It all depends on context.
In order to know these contexts, watch the video below!
