"Teh panas"

Translation:Hot tea

October 7, 2018



Teh panas is "hot tea" ....why is "iced tea" es teh? Where should the adjective be placed...before or after the noun?


It might seem strange, but because Indonesia has a huge variety of ice drinks (e.g. es buah), in this case the 'tea' describes the ice; whereas panas describes the tea. You are correct in thinking that the adjective comes after the noun it describes.


That makes sense. I was confused by the order of es teh. Thanks.


The audio in this one is very unintelligible. Both the fast as well as the slow version. It is garbled and the sounds are confusing. (Peh? Teh? Keh? Banas? Panas?)


yes, I agree. As a native it's quite understandable to hear, but its pronounciation is very mumble-ish
