An example of double word in Askar {Soldier}

Apa khabar tuan-tuan dan puan-tuan?

Inilah Hairil Iskandar dan staf sarjan Abdul Shalkie

Sedia [ready] mula [go, start p. 56 Nota BM]

Kami suka

Makan kari-pap

Dan bila kami…. haus [p. 54]

Minum [p. 54] sirap

 

Notice that the use of double word is in full: tuan-tuan dan puan-puan as address etiquette (see slide 8, Kuliah Sebelas).

The save energy theory is invoked when apabila [when] becomes bila [when?], air sirap [syrup water] becomes sirap.
