Why is the prefix "bel" rather than "ber" in this case?
This is one of the exceptions of the "ber-" prefix.
[ber-] + [ajar] = belajar
[ber-] + [kerja] = bekerja
It's actually the 'ber' prefix but the word experience consonant gradation.
In my opinion, "belajar" is a word.
Belajar = study
It is indeed a word, but not a root word. The root word of belajar is ajar.
I wrote, "I love to learn."
I knew that after many wrong answers, it's gonna be correct. It has to.
But then, I used the word box for that one.
saya skua berlajar is accepted with the misspelling
Good to know
