So how do you use afgan ? Do you use it when something cool happens ? Or when something bad happens?

Also, I thought bro was sob (sobat).

Can you use gan in a sentence?

Makasih!


lol, actually gan's are commonly used only in this community or in several specific places. Because of the word gan came from juragan. Which in english is equivalent with sir (but if it can also referred to bro).

The most common used indonesianslang are "gw" (me, I) , "lo" (you, him, her), and sometimes najis (disgusting).
Example of usage:
It's disgusting to be with you.

Slang:
Najis gw sama lo.

Ah.

Dibs is something you say when you want CLAIM something. If you say it FIRST you get it.

For example, if you are hanging with your friends and you see a hot girl, first person to call dibs gets to talk to her first.

Scenario:

You and your friends see Megan Fox

You: Dibs
A: Dibs
B: Dibs
C: Dibs
D: Dibs

You get to talk to her first since you called dibs.

Ok. Test time.

There is one pizza left. Who gets it?

A said Cat
B said Dibs
C said Dibs
D said Dibs

Even though A says something first, B gets the pizza because he said DIBS FIRST.

Ya dig ? (cool way to say do you understand)

What is the cool way to say " This is fun"?


wow.. thanks i learn one more thing from your posting.. thank you gan...

hi mate, where r u from?

for most indonesian here, the word "fuck" is very impolite.
now, if I say "monkey-fucking", they'll think it means having sex with monkey capedes
but it's not D

so, tell me (us) yours, and I'll tell u ours.
actually, it's nice to see some "bule" want to learn indonesian slang.
because once you master it, you'll feel KEREN :cool

What is Keren? Does it mean cool/badass ? Also can I use it in real life when talking to friends?

Ayt. (means aight or alright.) One of the things I observe here is that foreign students often sound like robots. This is because textbooks and schools do not teach them how to talk like a real person. One easy way to sound normal is to use words like dude, awesome, wicked or mad.

Dude is a great word. It can be used for anything. Cant remember someones name ? Use dude. You can call anyone dude except in business.

Awesome is also another word that you should use a lot. When some great happens, say awesome.

Ex. You are walking and see 20 dollars on the floor. AWESOME!

Wicked is also used like that.

Ex. You are playing DOTA with your friend. You get a double kill. WICKED!

Mad is a word that you should use to describe things. It is used to replace "very".

Ex. Instead of saying "You are very good at this game" say "Dang you got mad skills bro."

the correct form is fucking monkey, 'monkey fucking' is totally in wrong form and sounds stupid to be listened.

USA. Hope you can "learn" some slang. Gain sounds very unnatural. You also don't need to use feel in your second sentence. "Don't hesistate to ask anything about ..." is fine.

Your English is way better than my Indonesian. Awesome job!

yeah, it means "cool"

When you see something cool, you can say:

"Woaaah.. keren banget!!" (man, it's so damn cool!)

definitely. You can use it to talk to ur friends..

'keren' can be used to replace 'handsome' or 'hot' (ganteng or tampan in indonesian)..

Situation: a group of girls see Brad Pitt

Girl A: wow, tu cowok keren banget! (woa, that guy is hot!) *note: TU is a shorter form of ITU or 'that')

Girl B: Iya, keren banget. (yeah, he's so damn hot) *note: banget: very (another form of SANGAT)

Also is tuh the same as tu ? Is this sentence right " Jadi gw hari ini tuh letih".
Does it sound awkward ? How would you say it ?

Does anyone have any slang they'd like me to explain ?
lycantrophs - 16/10/2011 04:29 PM
#37

tuh and tu is the same. maybe it's like in french 'h muet', we don't really say tuH, or the H is really soft (almost can't hear the H).

We rarely use 'letih' nowadays.. Instead we use: capek or cape

"hari ini gw tuh cape banget" (I'm so tired today, you know)

it depends on the context, but that sentence is good.



another slang: Lebay. D

It's a kind of adjective that stated someone is overacting or overreacted.

Example:
You watch a thriller movie. Your friend is screaming like crazy. You can say:

"woi, lebay lu!" (hey, you're overreacted!)

Gan
Alay \)

alay is a way of writing that allows you to use capital letters and numbers wherever you jolly well like in a word. Alay started in Indonesia in about 2004, it seems that it has provided a root for a phenomenon that pervades many areas of popular culture, such a fashion and music. The main aim of alay culture seems to be narcissism. It's all about getting noticed and that includes what you write. Teach Me Indonesian Slang And I'll Teach You American Slang
