"Take" = antar, ambil dan jemput Ambil = object Jemput = person Antar = person I'm not clear on the difference between usage of jemput and antar. Can a clear distinction be easily made?

Take (object) (to get into one's hand) = mengambil (the root is ambil) E.g. : I want to take the book. = Saya ingin mengambil buku itu. Take (vehicles) = naik/mengendarai E.g. I will take the bus to go to John's house = Saya akan naik bus untuk pergi ke rumah John. Take (person) (accompany or guide someone to a specified place) = mengantar (the root is antar) E.g. I will take you to the market = Saya akan mengantarmu/ Anda ke pasar I don't think 'jemput' is equivalent to 'take'. Jemput means to pick (somebody) up. E.g. Jemput saya di sekolah jam 2 siang. = Pick me up at school at 2 pm. Hope that helps. :)

Hi keith, I'm native speaker of Indonesia and learning English. I think we can share our knowledges each other. I'd love to share about Indonesian with you! :). "Ambil" is used for Objects and "Jemput" is used for person but "Antar" it can be both ( object and person ). Jemput = pick up. Antar = Delivering something to someone (Object) or escorting someone to a place (Person).
