Let's speak Dusun

Mari belajar Bahasa Dusun

In an effort to save this ethnic language from extinct, I feel oblige to share it with anyone who’s interested to learn it.  Please post your comment.  For a start, let’s learn the few common words.

modop- sleep

Kuji kan modop – I want to go to sleep.

Andi kau modop- Not asleep yet?

Modop kau? – are you asleep?

Andi ku kalap modop- I can’t sleep

How’s that for a start?  Will keep updating.

    • Hi,
      Thanks for showing your interest. OK, let me give you more dusun vocabs: magak- lawa so kalau “lawak kau ani eh!” – “Magak kau etih eh!”
      “mari tah jalan2″- “Song noh manau-manau”; “Ikut kau jalan2?”- “Maya kau manau2″; “Baik2 jalan”- “munchoi2 manau”

      Bah atu saja dulu.

  4. Interesting…haha modop pun ertinya ‘tidur’ dalam bahasa Dusun di Sabah :)

    Comment by drak | December 2, 2011 | Reply

    • Hi drak,
      Ertinya bahasa dusun di Sabah hampir serupa dengan bahasa Dusun di Brunei dan juga bahasa Bisaya di Limbang. Mungkin serumpun tetapi terpisah oleh sempadan geografi. Selamat berkenalan!

      • Ya..nampaknya macam hampir serupa..selamat berkenalan juga :)

        Melalui komen2 yang ada di blog ini saya nampak beberapa persamaan yang lain:

        Dusun Brunei – Dusun Sabah – Melayu

        laos – louson – lapar
        tian – tian – perut
        manau – mamanau – jalan
        ngium – mogium – cari

  6. I want to know perkataan ” Mencari” atau “Cari” atau “Cari tah” in dusun ah.

    Comment by yukong | February 4, 2012 | Reply

    • Hi Yukong,
      Cari in Dusun, ‘ngium’, cari tia- ‘kun ngium nuh’, mencari- ‘kan ngium’ jadi perkataan dasar untuk cari ialah ‘ngium’. Diharap jawapan saya menepati soalan biskita. Terima kasih kerana berminat mempelajari Bahasa Dusun.
