I want to learn Kadazan Language. Which is correct?

Postby shineflower » Wed Sep 17, 2008 5:54 am

I came upon some blog to learn Kadazan language.. but then I saw the difference.. which is correct?

Good Morning Kotobian Doungosuvab .............. Kopivosian doh doungosuvab

Good Afternoon Kotobian Doungadau
Good Evening Kotobian Minsosodop
Good night Kotobian Doungotuvong .............. Kopivosian doh doungosodop
Good bye Ba. Tumoodo no ........................ Kopivosian do mamanau

err..

Also where can i get an audio version to learn.. Im afraid my pronunciation will not be accurate. Any books and audio to recommend and where to buy ONLINE?
I am not in Sabah.

Thanks :)

me too. saya pun harap betul ada urang boleh ajar2 bahasa2 ni bah :grin:
sama bah maksud dia tu, tapi kalo guna kopivosian lebih polite dan boleh digunakan sendiri tanpa sambung apa2.
kalo kotobian biasanya mesti nyatakan apa yang mau diungkapkan.

cth:-
kotobian tadau kaamatan, kotobian tadau tagazo do krismas.

kalo kopivosian :-
kopivosian = salam sejathera / peace upon you

  What are men really like?

  Men are like.....Bank Accounts. Without a lot of money they don't generate much interest.

  Men are like.....Bike helmets. Handy in an emergency but otherwise they just LOOK SILLY.

  Men are like.....Computers. Hard to figure out and never have enough memory.

  Men are like.....Government bonds. They take so long to mature.

  Men are like.....High heels. They're easy to walk on once you get the hang of it.

  Men are like.....Horoscopes. They always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.
men stop reading here. That is the end of the
joke.

  women keep'a scrollin'...

  So your lives suck if you count on men. By the way
if you're a man and you're reading this this illustrates another point: men never listen either.

shineflower,
banyak orang di SF ini yang boleh membantu anda.malangnya,bahasa yang anda minta iaitu bahasa Kadazan...bahasa yang hampir tidak kedengaran lagi di seluruh Sabah(minta maaf kepada orang Kadazan tapi itulah hakikatnya).tapi,jika shineflower minta petunjuk di dalam bahasa Dusun,saya dan baaaanyak forumer di dalam forum ini boleh membantu anda.tapi saya masih ada rasa tabik dan hormat pada kamu shineflower..setinggi-tingginya,kerana ketika orang Kadazan mengenepikan bahasanya,kamu ingin kembalikannya pula.harap banyak orang Kadazan seperti kamu...teruskan usaha kamu shineflower.

di dalam bahasa Dusun,'i love you' boleh disamakan dengan ucapan 'oupus oku dika'

shineflower..i noticed u were saying that u are not kadazan, but ur bf are right? it's great that u r making a move to learn kadazan to surprise ur bf.
i love u = oupus oku dika (dusun)
i love u = oupus zou diau (kadazan)
