THROWING WORDS

Tuesday, November 30, 2004

Quite a number of readers commented on the Chairil Anwar post. Thank you. I enjoyed them all. I didn't reply to the comments because by the time I came back from Taiping and recover, it was time to write and post another entry.

D'arkampo, in Chairil's comments raised an interesting point about a couple of Terengganu words having the same meaning. He gave

  1. lepo (rhymes with "paw")
  2. pelekong (rhymes with King Kong or kong kong)
  3. petong ( same as above)
  4. tago (rhymes with Stop, Look, Go)
  5. andeng (my addition- rhymes loosely with "strange?")

All of the above words have a common English translation: throw. But, Terengganuspeak sometimes being richer than English, goes one step further. Those words are different from each other depending on what is thrown and what the target of the throw is (if any). Stop scrunching up your face and let me explain.

  1. lepo is the garden variety throw.

"Ngiyang lepo cicing ttunang dia dalang sunga"
(Ngiyang threw her engagement ring into the river). Andeng or handeng is the synonym although it is more forceful than just lepo. When someone throw a tantrum, he/she might andeng anything handy. You know, ashtrays, vase, dinner plates, the cook etc.

  1. pelekong is also to throw but there is a target.

"Ngiyang cabu' cicing ttunang dia, pah tu pelekong tunang dia"
(Ngiyang took off her engagement ring and used it to throw at her fiance)

  1. petong gave rise to two schools of thought. One group insisted that it is the same as pelekong while the other maintained that petong is to throw a heavy object at a subject.

"Ngiyang petong tok tue dia dengang alu lesong"
(Ngiyang threw the pestle at her mother-in-law)

  1. tago is throwing objects at a bigger object like a house or a wall. Probably can be translated as "bombard".

"Ngiyang kelo dua tiga pat kali, laki dia takmboh tubek jugok. Ngiyang pong tago rumoh tok tue dia dengang bola golf"
(After calling two or three times, Ngiyang's husband still refused to come out so she threw golf balls at her mother in-law's house)

By the way, this short-tempered (bekeng and pongoh) Ngiyang bears no resemblance to any Mariam, living or dead.

When the second generation handphones came, a friend saw my early 1st generation handphone which was big and heavy. He said:
"Pinjang handphone. Nak plekong buah pelang"
(Lend me your handphone, I want to use it to throw at some mangoes".

  • PokKu.. andeng/handeng - does it similar to hand-in? I was thinking since I found some words (nah, I could not recall..blank..) could probably rooted from English... Could it be due to the colonisation??

  • Ngiyang Pasir Panjang: I did think of you when I wrote the post. Hence the disclaimer.
    Zaireen: Nope "andeng" is not from "hand-in". However, there are 'colonial' words like "gohed" and "gostan" etc.
    md: LOL. Recycle as best as you can.
    d'arkampo: Thanks for the compliments. Thanks for the words. I thought of another "throw" word: tohok.
    gartblue: Hey, Selangor words are intersting too.
    napaloh: Welcome to the gang and InsyaAllah I wil try my best.

Kelo"..Perhaps a few other examples of its usage will assist me in using it in my future conversation so as to assert my terengganuness when i next dok sembang kak wakaf denge saing saing. Dirgahayu pokku on your articles.

  • Anonymous: "Kelo" is to call. The easiest way to remember this is to think of "keloi" as when you are paged in a hotel lounge or coffee house. They either call out your name over the PA system or they have your name written on a board that has a bell on it.

    By Blogger Bustaman, at 9:54 PM  
  • There are four words I can recall from my Northern Perak vocab for throw:
    1) Tawok (your version of tahok)
    2) Balin (from baling)
    3) Punggai
    4) Lempaq (your version of lepo);
    other than buang of course. We never use the word campak.
    My father might know your version of pelekong, though. :)

  • Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
    You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
