Bahasa Indonesia Words With Dual Meaning: "Minggu"

Memorizing and understanding many different vocabularies is a really important part of becoming fluent

in the language you are learning, because of this, we have already previously discussed many Bahasa Indonesia

dual-meaning words such as jadi, palu, and beruang so be sure to check out those posts as well!

This time, we are discussing . . . “Minggu.

For a better understanding, take a look at the following examples:

Biasanya pada hari Minggu, aku dan keluargaku menonton film di rumah.

Usually on Sunday, my family and I watch a movie at home.

Aku akan pergi ke Bali minggu depan untuk mengunjungi rumah kakekku.

I will go to Bali next week to visit my grandfather’s home.

Just like the examples above show, the word Minggu can mean both the English words “Sunday” and “week.” Please note that there is a small difference in grammar as the word Minggu meaning “Sunday” will always have

a capitalized “M” because it is the name of a day.

Aside from that, the word is spelt and pronounced in the same way for both meanings, so you will have

to pay close attention to the context where it is used in a conversation.

For examples of contexts where you can use this word, check out this video!

Have you read our other posts about dual-meaning words yet? If you haven’t, improve your Bahasa Indonesia fluency by learning about the words bisa, orang tua, apel, tinggal, lewat, pukul, halaman, and tahu.

Selamat berlatih!
