Dialect 2

Dear Diary,

Today's words are:

SAT - wait a minute (sekejap,jap,tunggu)
MAI - come here (mari, datang ke sini)
PI - go (pergi)
TANG - at (di, kat)

And here are more words (suggested by my friend SL):

LOQLAQ - clumsy, not behaving nicely, impolite (tak senonoh, kurang ajar)
PEDAI AYAM - padlock or chicken's internal organ that can be eaten (mangga, pedal ayam)
BERANDA - verandah, porch (bahagian depan atau tepi rumah selalunya untuk meletakkan kenderaan)
MARKET - market (pasar)

We, Kedahans, do incorporate English words in our dialect as shown in the last two words.

5 notes of inspiration:
