Lagi Patroli

Begini nih kalo kurang kerjaan… Bukan ahli, tapi kebetulan sedikit tahu mana yang bener. Mudah2an berguna…

ENGLISH
Thank God, not thanks God, apalagi thank‘s god
Thank God: puji Tuhan, syukurlah
Kalo maksudnya “Thank you, God” = “Thanks, God” (sama kayak “Thanks, La…”)

Worth it, not worthed
Worth is both an adjective and a noun, not a verb. Therefore you can’t add the suffix -ed. Well, you can actually, but then it doesn’t mean a thing and wrong.

Candle-lit dinner, not candlelight dinner
Candle-lit dinner: makan malam diterangi cahaya lilin
Candlelight dinner: makan malam cahaya lilin? Makasih, lu makan aja sendiri!

[Come and] join us, not joint us
Joint itu sendi (dan beberapa arti lainnya, but definitely not what you mean in that sentence).

Christmas, not Chrismast

Deadline, not dateline
(Sumbangan dari Puni)

BAHASA INDONESIA
Paralel, bukan palarel apalagi pararel

Aluminium, bukan alumunium

Frustrasi, bukan frustasi

Instruksi, bukan intruksi
Konstruksi, bukan kontruksi
Introspeksi, bukan intropeksi
Demonstrasi, bukan demontrasi
Remember to insert an “S” in the right place!

Feminin, bukan feminim

Abonemen, bukan abodemen. Situ lagi bindeng?

Risiko, bukan resiko

Identitas, bukan indentitas

BAHASA INGGRIS ALA ORANG INDONESIA
[Dunia] entertainment, bukan [dunia] entertain.
Entertain adalah kata kerja, entertainment kata benda.

Special diucapkan “spés-syèl”, bukan “spèy-syèl”

Fashion diucapkan “fæs-syièn”, bukan “fey-syèn”

Event diucapkan “i-vént”, bukan “i-vèn”

  1. ada lagi 'kan, negoisasi (NEGOSIASI), sunslik (Sunsilk), konsen (maksudnya concerned, atau konsentrasi, sih????), konslet (padahal dari korslet, yang aslinya kortsluiting tuh/bahasa belanda). Trus melafalkan ide harusnya idé, as é in kafé.
