there are lots of sharks in the ocean?
Ocean = lautan
Sea = laut
There are a bunch of sharks in the sea
There are many sharks at sea.
Hiu adalah kata baru buat saya tapi kamu tidak kata itu
I remember that "northwest" and "northeast" are "barat laut" and "timur laut" respectively. What role does "sea" ("laut") play here? What kind of sea does one refer to in this case?
