1. I don’t understand q 3.
What are the typical features of meanings in peN….an-nouns compared to ke……an-nouns? Look at the meaning of the base words and check out the new meanings after the affixation. Is there a difference in terms of abstractness, e.g. pendapatan vs. kecantikan.
2. How do we explain the meaning? in English or Malay?
in Malay to provide the Malay explanation as a Malay learner would like to do.
3. The text is quite hard.
Here is the background to locate the reading. It is an excerpt on the queue for IPHone 4 in Sept 2010. It shows a digital generation clearly exists. The time-line for submission is to ensure that there is some quality time spent to decode and encode Malay so that we can have more pro-active learning experience. We shall meet next Friday to discuss Any Problems arising from learning after the learners have done some applied linguistic work on their parts.
