  • la'al teka'ok (rooster) tidih kan, not la'al teku'uk. I thought teku'uk is a dejected kind of posture. "Ngudah netoq koh teku'uk kayuq la'al laq matey?" --SRajaDita 14:30, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
  • Moo kinah kinah ayu tiah -la'al teka'uk or teka'ok. Adtah word beken tah 'tegu'ok' lem ukung kediah terun?.
  • I've moved apag to epag (mepag, pepag..) --SRajaDita 14:18, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
  • Edteh beruh: keput, tekeput - let ngen 'eput' teh tekeput ken keduih. Meaning 'to shoot out' as a dart. Eg. tekeput ebpaq let lem paip. --SRajaDita 02:14, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
  • uih pah la' peraruh tuih ni'er dih natoq. kadiq ilung "keput" is something abrupt or sudden. I think it is mereput or pereput ebpa paip instead of tekeput ebpaq. keput could be same meaning as kiput?--SRajaParan 06:24, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
  • kapeh metoq leq narih tekeput bebpaq, or tekeput akaq da? --SRajaDita 11:56, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
  • uput bebpa/akaq, tepesak akaq ngenah pelaba gelitemen.
  • Moo, thanks, kereb ayuq tah root word "rereb" let ngen "ereb" terun. Tu'en kuh direct nah rereb to ereb. And also I think "irut" is from the word "erut" - kapah kan kiko?--SRajaParan 01:12, 3 April 2008 (MDT)
  • Panid na'an teh irut & erut ken keduih. Ngirut (not ngerut) teh ken keduih for zip-up. --SRajaDita 02:14, 4 April 2008 (MDT)
  • oh moo kinah ayuq tidih. Tu'en uih nulu iah. Thanks.
  • Kapeh dedter and dedtel (nedtel, pededtel...)? Is it a matter of pronunciation or are these two distinct words of similar meaning? --SRajaDita 06:51, 7 February 2008 (MST)
    • Not too sure if both words are used for similar meaning, but there is another meaning for dedter (I think, dedter means also branch or something like that!) - manuk tegu'ok luun dedter.
  • ken paad ilung delinan ngen kelinan? --SRajaDita 14:46, 24 January 2008 (MST)
    • uih pah confused nato' ngan word duah inih - ngitun mutang, koq. --SRajaParan 06:46, 25 January 2008 (MST)
  • for the derived words, I think it's better to just redirect to the root word so that we don't waste time editing duplicates. Here's a reminder of the format to redirect for example diko to iko. Note that categorising the word under it's first letter (D in this case) ensures that it is indexed in the dictionary under D.
#REDIRECT [[iko]]
[[Category:D|diko]]
    • OK. thank you.
  • q in the middle: na'am keduih setuju pakai q in the middle betoq (using it at the end makes sense). Suggest to leave the mid glottal sound as it is for now. --SRajaDita 09:34, 23 January 2008 (MST)
    • Ok, da'at ayu' tah aten dih. La' ma'ed-ma'ed tah narih masaq dih.--Lorrain 09:46, 23 January 2008 (MST)
  • nier koh a'ul.. ken tulu dih? --SRajaDita 11:08, 4 December 2007 (CET)
    • I don't know about this a'ul, but aul is also the thing used to secure your earrings. The thing use to make head (uluh langan) of a dart is also call aul. Maybe you confused it with angel. Adtah angel pa'uh - is one bundle of pa'uh. maybe root word of pangel, ngangel?
      • I think you confused a'ul with angel. angel (bundel) pa'uh. Ngengal (embrace), pepangel or papid (to embrace someone).--SRajaParan 06:46, 25 January 2008 (MST)
  • nier nenganuh.. epin sier sinih tuen neh nenganuh kan? --SRajaDita 20:31, 2 December 2007 (CET)
    • Moo nah yeh terun. Dari tah da'un nadih. Da'un kaber dih, tu'en dah ngurak (split) tah idih sebelum narih nanganuh dih.
  • Can you have a look at this article: giru'. Looks like giru' to me. ? --SRajaDita 19:29, 2 December 2007 (CET)
    • Potato tungen tah idih kenah. Kayu penguman tah pudut dih keli' keduih. Kayu' pudut bua' tabuh or bua' simun riniki tidih. Biasa, giru' tu'en dah ngelibuh tah idih tu'en ngeriki or nenek.
      • mo key kuayu simun goreng ayu tidih kuh kuan iko.. --SRajaDita 20:31, 2 December 2007 (CET)
  • Where can I find the watch tab? I can see unwatch and mywatchlist.
    • if you see the tab unwatch, that means you already have the page 'watch'ed. mywatchlist tracks all the pages that you have marked to 'watch'. I just realised that I only get a msg unless someone writes on my talk page. --SRajaDita 09:47, 30 November 2007 (CET)
  • You put the word busir in. Different from buser? --SRajaDita 20:24, 29 November 2007 (CET)
    • busir is something like keritut, growing on the skin. Michelle has one under her arm pit.
  • I have a question for you. See Talk:Busak luduh --SRajaDita 12:05, 3 August 2007 (CEST)
  • Note I've made changes to the items you submitted. 1.busak luduh 2.bua ulem --SRajaDita 11:19, 3 August 2007 (CEST)
  • Check out discussion on aul. --SRajaDita 23:30, 18 November 2007 (CET)
  • TIP: If you click on watch tab, you will be notified of any changes on this page. --SRajaDita 10:16, 19 November 2007 (CET)
  • See ebpa' --SRajaDita 11:17, 19 November 2007 (CET)
  • I've moved a few of your articles (abpa', abpaa (abpa) ) to avoid duplicates. Spelling for sounds that are between A and E (like abpa'/ ebpa', tamabu'/temabu') should be spelled with an e. If the sound is not open like aah (going to the dentist kind) alai, anjing, and more like beras, besar, Debpur (river), but Dapur (kitchen). See spelling guide. ---SRajaDita 11:55, 19 November 2007 (CET)
  • Moo doo', may be just make a note to direct the word to main spelling, as people tend to use 2 spellings, or just make a note, see ... if somebody is looking for abpa', he will be pointed to go to ebpa', and on main item ebpa', may be include under alternative spelling - abpa'. - lorrain
  • Ya, I put a redirect on the (common) alternative spelling eg abpa'. And on the main item (eg. ebpa'), I put the alternative spelling in bracket. Just quite difficult to think of all the possible spelling variations others might use. So if we try to use the same convention throughout, then it'll be easier. --SRajaDita 00:12, 20 November 2007 (CET)
