"Jangan melemparkan tas itu ke bawah!"

Translation:Do not throw that bag down!

January 5, 2019



You use me-kan when there is an object having the action done to it. Jangan melempar -dont throw. Jangan melenparkan tas - don't throw bags.


I'm trying to make sense of this lesson and what the -kan suffix adds. What is the difference between melempar and melemparkan?

Melemparkan seems a little more aggressive?


Me-kan as I understand means to cause something to someone or something else
