sama di Melayu / same in Malaysian. and i agree, the accent is neat, but many words were inherited from Dutch -- like apel, rok+
kue-kue refer to several cakes, 2 (or more) slices of cake, 2 (or more) cupcakes, or any of them?
I feel like i should be able to write balls, cakes and dogs. It feels natural even though its not asked here.
agreed, but that would have been written as "bola-bola, kue-kue dan anjing-anjing".
although it's easiest to type those as bola2, kue2 + anjing2, those are not accepted (yet) because it's not proper. however, natives will understand you if you type plurals this way
