"Gaun ini milik Sri."
Translation:This dress belongs to Sri.

I think that would be 'Ini gaun Sri'. Gaun ini is sort of a unit on its own (this dress).
The meaning is the same but the sentence construction is truly different. Inilah gaun Sri is how I would say This is Sri's dress.
So, "milik" (as well as "punya") can mean both "to have" and "to belong to"? How do you distinguish the two meanings?
I'm not a native speaker, but as far as I know, when using "punya", the subject is the possessor, whereas with "milik", the subject is the thing that's possessed. For example:
Saya punya kucing = I have a cat
Kucing milik saya = a/the cat belongs to me
I hope that helped
This is a false cognate. 'Gaun' does not mean 'gown' even though it sounds like it, it only means 'dress'. Presumably bahasa would have a different word for 'a fancy dress' (but maybe not) that better equates to 'gown' in English.
Some of the exercises give gown as the correct answer instead of dress; kbbi simply defines it as " baju wanita model Eropa"
Ah, okay. It was just because when you hover over it gives the optional translation of 'gown'. Thanks anyway!
The new audio sounds very different like "gun" instead of "gaun." Is this an alternate pronunciation?
Nothing alternate pronunciation.. gaun only gaun, Ga un.. For me, its like gown.. sorry for my bad english language..
In the man voice it says "goon ini milik Sri" so you should change it back to female voice.
It's passive vs active. "This dress belongs to Sri" = passive. "This is Sri's dress" = active. Still trying to figure out active vs passive di bahasa indonesia
I put "Daun ini milik Seri" and was correct? Even though daun means leaf not dress.
Sri is also happens to be a common Indian prefix to the name of a woman, and sometimes a name in itself as well.
What is the difference between Sri owns this dress and This dress belings to Sri? Both should be marked correct
Iya, supaya mereka mengenali nama-nama khas Indonesia seperti Andi, Tono, Tini, Dimas, dan lainnya.
