what to Do..98% of my days i used only malay languages
because I'm a traveller now..i Hope within this 5 years...i'll be 100% melanau
MelaNAU DALAT pula...known as Melanau KPG TANAM where my dad grow up.
i'm telling you all my friend..he he he
Melanau @ my dad kpg is very slow dialect.. i think so and i believe any dialect from other places also have this different rhythm.
i like to hear my cousins speak in their language but i can't follow them.. i'm a moderate talker. i can't imaging it for u..he he he so lamak to tunggu abis 1 ayat ooo!! but i love it..
erm.. for me,problem occur when i visited my grandma [my mom's dad] and if i want to have a conversation with her, i have to speak in fully melanau tanam . becoz my grandma can't understand even i speak in melanau mukah. She will asked me to 'telabou liko' which means ckp bahasa kpg. argghh~~ its take about 2 days for me to recalled this language..
ha ha ha..its too bad for me right?? &%#@
mmm..thats the story about me and melanau dialect
i'm trying to improve my traditional dialect.. its a heritage for my generation.. although i'm not so fluent as long i know a bit about it...
