Minggu keenam: Mata-mata en: Week six: Spies Salah satu cara untuk menunjukkan pluralitas adalah dengan reduplikasi. Namun ada beberapa frase yang memiliki arti yang jauh berbeda seperti contoh di atas en: One way to show plurality in Indonesian is by reduplication (repeating the word twice). But several phrases always in plural form, and some have different meaning with the original word. Like the example above, "Mata" means "eye(s)", but "Mata-mata" means "spy(ies)". To know whether the 'eye' or 'spy' is singular or plural, we use number in front of it, i.e. An eye, several spies, many eyes, etc. An lmost complete list could be found here: http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kata_Indonesia_yang_selalu_dalam_bentuk_terulang
