This is the first time it appears for me: tak is short for tidak and is used in an informal conversation?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LawsonDaSi

How often? Is it seen as really informal, or just casual.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/arf2wise

no, it's a common sentence

Nama saya Fatima, tolong ikuti saya! :)

"Dia tidak taat" should be added as a correct answer.

No idea. Caught me out too.

"tak" is neither formal, nor really used in conversation. Why not use "ng" -,- (24.1.21)

La tak menurut? I don't understand

La tak menurut?

It's not 'La' but 'ia'

(written with a capital letter i)

Tak menurut means she doesn't obey


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Babuzhovik

According to Echols/Shadili it should be mematuh! Not menurut, which is follow.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

Who/What is Echols/Shadili ?

'mematuh' is not listed in the KBBI.

It's better to check with the official dictionary KBBI.

'patuh' is the base word.

https://kbbi.kemdikbud.go.id/entri/patuh

See the entries listed under 'kata turunan'.

Those are the words derived from the base word.

pa.tuh
a suka menurut (perintah dan sebagainya); taat (pada perintah, aturan, dan sebagainya); berdisiplin:
gadis itu sangat -- pada agamanya; rakyat selalu -- kepada pemerintah

Kata Turunan
kepatuhan; mematuhi; pematuhan; terpatuh

As you can see, 'mematuh' is not listed.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/arf2wise

"mematuhi" should be accepted "mematuh" is not a word


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

"mematuhi" is transitive, needs a direct object in the sentence.

There is no direct object in this sentence.

"mematuhi" cannot be used here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JadasS

Is "menurut" really the correct answer here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

Huh ???

Is this a serious question ???

Are you trolling ???

Let me do some copy/paste for you, from the top of the page ....

"She does not obey."

Translation:Dia tidak menurut.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/arf2wise

yes, but patuh, taat, should also be accepted
