  5. "Dia makan semangkuk sup."

"Dia makan semangkuk sup."

Translation:She is eating a bowl of soup.

Dia makan mangkok sup lebih gampang buat banyak orang


That would mean you eat the bowl not the soup...

So it must be "semangkok" instead of "mangkok" only.

It is similar to this case. He eats a plate of rice- Dia makan sepiring nasi

Not... Dia makan piring nasi (in this case you eat the plate, not the rice)..

Se- in front of a word indicates "one/a/an"


Thanks for your clarification, falcon074!
