Advanced writing of students of Malay and Indonesian
And this is the third and my last book of Malay language.
This book has a rather different aspect
At fist the structure is nearly as of the book of Malay grammar , with Malaysian and Indonesian to be separated by columns , and in case the text is nearly identical only the non-identical terms are separated by a slash and showed with a raised letter M or I for Malaysian and Indonesian lang respectively
The chapters include the following topics
- Chronological order
- Spatial relations
- Comparison and control
- Generalizations and specifics
- Cause and effect
- Prediction and inference
- Refutation and complaint
The first part shows terms in both Malay/Indo wit the structure and terming as noticed above (actually expressions ) with their translation on the the second column in English
On latihan (exercises ) it is again a 2 column text – separately Malay and Indonesian
Each chapter shows excerpts from various newspapers and also letter formats
Unfortunately this book is quite advanced for me. Because i have never started systematically learning the language.
