my opinions on sabahan slang

I was proud that sabahan especially kadazan dusun already shown their improvement in the internet world. If you go to the youtube website and search for dusun songs, there are lots. Not only the song, now you can see more and more sabahan especially Kadazan Dusun Murut (KDM) running a blog. I was take an example inmyu blog links, all of them are sabahan blogger, and I believe it just a little there are still many blogger out there that I cannot list in my blog links.

Some of my reader might not sabahan and saying I’m very stick to our nationality. My answer is, Yes I do BUT I still proud to be Malaysian. I’m not wan to give a political speech here I just want to share something to my blog readers. I had visit somporiding blog today and one of his topic really capture my attention. I believe this is a new born blog because the first post made on Saturday, 30 August 2008.

JANGAN MEROSAKKAN BAHASA ASAL SABAH...!!!! was really made me thinking and asking my self, is that correct? Then I was taken a few moments to thing and trying to get what somporiding said. Yep .. he is correct , we need to educate our people to love and fluent speak Sabahan slang. His idea is really good. Then I came to the second level, how about sabahan slang grammar? We didn’t have any formal education for sabahan slang and it makes people come out with their own sentences either the grammar correct or not. The most important is the “sound” is correct, no matter the spelling is correct or not. In our daily life also, we always use short form or any other alternative to spell the word to be more nice and simple as long other people understand what we are gonna speak. I took an example “want to” become “wanna”, “kau” become “ko”, “okay” becomes “ok”.

saya dapati ada dua blog mau menyesatkan org2 sabah...dan seterusnya seluruh dunia..iaitu, GURANGAK dan DEFOO sebab dorg buat satu slogan sabah iaitu "buli BA kalau kau" tpi sebenarnya mcmni "buli BAH kalau kau" bkn "BA" tapi "BAH" bah...!!!!!! harap faham maksud dan impian org sabah...!!!!

here are some of the controversial tagline, usage of BAH.

I didn’t want to stand in any side but what I’m concern is KDM will learn their own language. There is an advantage if you know more than one language but it doesn’t mean we left behind our local language. I didn’t care about the way we spell the words especially when it comes to “sabahan slang” but the younger generation knows their own language. We didn’t have any formal education on it, so it depend on us to use the sabahan slang creatively. Believe me, if there are differences idea, then it will be come as a good point to form or start something to search a path for find an answer solving the problem.

Balajar tokow noh koti mimboros dot Kadazan, Dusun om Murut. Amu nopo moti nga atanus moti iti boros tokow. Yoku nogi nga songulun tanak dusun, om umbalan ko mimboros dusun kumaa tambalut ku momoguno dusun. Sinding dusun ogumo kotulung doho dot mamarati diti boros tokow. Aharap oku dot maid-laid , mumu-gumu sinding tokow mogoi amu olingan iti boros tokow.
