Object Construction/ Passive
Can someone please explain (in simple form I'm dumb) what happens in object construction when in first person, second person and third person. i have been taught it, i just don't understand :)
I don't understand the question. Are you talking about pronouns or nouns? Or is this about the pattern where you say something like "Akan kubeli bola" I've forgotten how that works, but will look it up when I got home. My Indonesian wife advises me it's quite rare to see it these days though.
Unless you're asking a much simpler question, or for anyone that stumbles across this one, here's another answer.
For nouns, there is never any change for person or case.
Saya membeli bola = I bought a ball
Anda membeli bola = You bought a ball
Dia membeli bola = She bought a ball etc
Same thing in passive:
Bola dibeli oleh saya = The ball was bought by me
Bola dibeli oleh Anda = The ball was bought by you
Bola dibeli oleh dia = The ball was bought by her.
For pronouns, a change is possible, but not necessary, and only in in informal language.
Bola dibeli olehku - The ball was bought by me
Bola dibeli olehmu - The ball was bought by you
Bola dibeli olehnya - The ball was bought by her
You generally can't use these contractions in active sentences
Ku ngebeli bola, Mu ngebeli bola, Nya ngebeli bola.
thanks :) so in you use the di form in third person what about first and second?
