Why is it that you can choose to include "berumur" or not? For example when wrote out the translation I wrote "Nama saya Andi, saya umur dua puluh tahun." but the answer there said it's "berumur" but the translation here at the top of the page doesn't even include it at all.
@pat5120 from what another person had said in some otger comment thread,
Usia is more formal than Umur But both essentially has the same meaning of "age"
And the phrases "Saya berumur" and "Umur saya" Are interchangable and mean the same thing, "My age is", just that
The sentence structure is different, where "Berumur" has to come after "Saya" while "Umur" has to come before "Saya"
Good question. My guess would be that it's the use of the formal pronoun "saya" and the ending "-ku" that comes (?) from the informal pronoun "aku" in the same sentence, but - as I wrote - it's only my guess so we need some native speaker's help.
Why isn't the word "umur" included in Duolingo's translation? Why does Nama come before saya, instead of the reverse order?
Why the part of the sentence 'I am twenty years old' is being translated as 'saya dua puluh tahun'? Why 'umur' or 'berusia' or something else to mean 'old' is not being used? Does that mean it's not always needed if it's understandable that the person is talking about their age?
TesaKaban I found out why that's wrong. "Tips and Notes: Possessive Pronouns There are some exceptions for “aku”, “kamu”, and “dia”, which uses affixes "-ku", "-mu", and "-nya" respectively: "Ini rumahku" (This is my house) "Ini rumahmu" (This is your house) "Ini rumahnya" (This is his/her house)" So you can't say nama aku but have to say namaku
"Puluh" means ten.
10 - Sepuluh. (Think 'se' as 'satu (one)').
20 - dua puluh. Dua = two.
30 -tiga puluh. Tiga = three.
Literal translation of Indonesian language:
10 - one ten - sepuluh
20 - two ten - dua puluh
30 - three ten - tiga puluh
40 - four ten - empat puluh
