I was wondering if "nak(=hendak)" and "mau(=mahu)" could be interchangeable, otherwise any difference between them in usage??



Thanks in advance.^^/

    There are no differences for these. You can use both anytime you want.
    just think how would you use "I wish" and "I want"....

    It is the same thing with "Mau" and "Nak"

    E.g
    *saya mau ke pasar
    *saya nak membeli sebuah buku
