Dear cikgu Sew,
I understand that during tutorial you mentioned that the more important words are to be put in front but I still can’t figure out some sentences.
For using of awak, is awak used most of the time at the back of an verb.
Siapakah nama awak.
Apakah perkerjaan awak.
But I am confused by sentences like awak tinggal di mana?
If I say di mana tinggal awak? Is it still grammatically correct?
Jawapan / Answer
The first set of your examples are phrases
Nama awak = your name hence Siapa nama awak = What’s your name?
Pekerjaan awak = your work hence apakah pekerjaan awak = What’s your job?
The second datum has awak as a pronoun representing a person
Awak tinggal di mana? = You stay where?
You have the same differences of awak/you in English:
You vs. your
so the first set of awak-examples are about your X, Y, Z.
