Why not terlalu terlambat?
My answer was "Andi dihukum karena terlalu terlambat." too.
"terlambat" also means "too late" other than just "late" ?
too late = terlambat = terlalu lambat. Terlalu terlambat is wrong in this sentence cause it has repetition. Terlalu terlambat = very very late
Thanks for explanation but does that mean that 'terlalu lambat' should also be correct? Or is that just a clumsy expression that would never be used?
Dia terlambat wont work?
Is "terlalu lambat" also correct? Thank you.
Why doesn't "terlalu lambat" work? The statement in english says "too late" which would be terlalu lambat - not "terlalu terlambat" (redundant) or just "terlambat" (not strong enough)!
