My Comment in my native Malay dialect:-

1) Super yer jer, due-due makne same, hok tu ler jer.
2) Oghang politik duk guner pekataang nok wi sedak hati pihok-pihok bekenaang. Tapi mende gini peting jugok sebak kene mengene dengang pepaduang masharaka' bebilang kaung.
3) Zainuddin Maidin duk saloh ke Anwar Ibrahim hok tukor dari Bahasa Malaysia ke Bahasa Melayu, walhal dier pong guner sebak nok kauk undi bukang Melayu, nok wat sedak hati.
4) Sebelum Malaysia namer negare kiter ni Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, doh nok kira guaner? Dok ke yang tu hok asal kita.
5) Ader universiti kat negare orang putih rasanya ader fakulti bahasa Melayu, yang duk ngaji bahasa asal tanoh hok kita duduk lening, doh mintok la tukor sekali nama tu. Guaner DBP dok berapa cakner?

Apo khabar?

Haha.... entri pasal Bahasa lagi. Uuush, caya la, sampai guna bahasa Tganu.... saya paham sikit sikit aje.

Yg penting , bahasa tu merapatkan lagi tali persaudaraan penduduk di bumi ini, lebih lebih lagi penduduk di Malaysia. Yakni, kami sama sama boleh berkomunikasi ,bertukar2 pendapat dan tolong menolong... cukup lah, betul kan Saiful?

Pasal nak dimanipulasi utk tujuan politik ke apa benda yg merapu tu, biar lah, duk kasi noktah sama dia.

Saya rasa ramai yg tak paham niat/ isi tersirat disebalik entri saya yg hampir sama dgn tajuk hang ini, biar lah ...
