A New Trengganuspeak Word From Awang Goneng


[this is the revised comment as posted at Uncle Awang Goneng’s blog]

Wow Uncle AG, that is another new Trengganuspeak word for me to learn. Neither my parents had ever mentioned it to me before.

I have been “trying” to write some notes about Trengganuspeak too at my blog: Trengganuspeak and Trengganuspeak (2).

But definitely not to challenge the “sifu”. By that, hopefully you will not be mistakenly called “Awang Goneng Siput” as in Pok Chang Siput (your “Snapshots to the Past” that mentioned about my ancestor’s [Pok Loh] migration from China).

All my sibling enjoyed the several meetings we had especially when you came to visit our Atuk and Nenek and later during the GUiT launching at our Keda Pok Loh (Alam Akademik).

Photo 1: Showing Uncle AG the Dewan Pelajar (Disember 2006) which featured me on the cover. Sharing the moment were my siblings and Atuk.

Photo 2: Group photo after GUiT lauching at my Nenek’s Alam Akademik (Keda Pok Loh). Pok Loh’s sole surviving son (my great grandfather) is between Uncle AG and Auntie Zaharah (Kak Teh)

Note: But my dad just commented that he use “kherjong” instead of “kerejong” [I don’t know how to do the “umlaud” as you did]. And I thought it was “khejong” as in “kerah khejong” but as it happen, kerejong has nothing to do with khejong. That is how difficult and confusing Trengganuspeak is (to me).

  1. Salam. Congratulations, really proud to see kids like you start blogging confidently. Keep up good work and learning ‘terengganuspeak word’. Even, my children still not familiar with those ‘weird words’.

  2. Congrat to you too!

    It’s always been a great challenge to correctly spell terengganu words if that is possible at all. I have never come across any literary that cater for the subject either.

    Therefore I am not surprised to see when we cannot agree how to spell a given word. Please see my little discussion at how confusing it is for us Terengganu speakers when it comes to spelling and standardspeak at my blog…

  3. Dear Cikgu Sharifah,

    Thank you for the kind words. Insya Allah I’ll keep on writing about Trengganuspeak as it helps me to learn more about it.
