I would say "They call the police"
The other sentence has Mereka menelepon kepolisian as standard answer.
Is it necessary to say the?
Or they call for the police
I wonder if memanggil means calling on the phone as well, or just by voice. So is memanggil all of these: calling somebody's name, calling somebody a name, calling on the phone, calling somebody over?
I was just about to ask the same.
Tidak memanggil polisi! ✊
BLM! ✊ I think "Tidak memanggil polisi!" would mean "Isn't calling the police!"
My understanding is that you need a "jangan": Jangan panggil/memanggil polisi!
That "jangan" before a verb makes it a negated command (don't [verb]).
Thanks for explaining. :)
No problem! Hope your studies go well :)
