#EngTrivia: About Pun

Pun pronunciation

@rehaneta: by the way, how do you pronounce ‘pun’?” It’s [puhn] / secara Bahasa “pan” seperti kata panci tanpa ci-nya

You can hear the pronouncatiation here http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pun  @rehaneta

 

Pun salah satu jenis joke

@Portuguesamava: maksudnya joke gitu yah ?” Iya, puns adalah bagian dari ngelucu jadi ya salah satu jenis joke juga

 

Pun bukan gombalan

@Portuguesamava: kalo “gombalan” English nya apa min, disebutnya gimana ?“

Good question @Portuguesamava, tapi setahu admin bukan “puns”. Tujuan ngegombal adalah lebih kepada merayu atau menggoda – B. Inggris-nya “flirting”, jadi bisa saja itu bagian dari “flirting jokingly”? Mungkin fellas ada pendapat lain?

@FarizMohammed: pickup lines?” Iya, bisa juga pickup lines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pick-up_line …)

Sepertinya “pickup line” yang paling cocok buat arti gombalan @Portuguesamava

 

Pun susah dimengerti dan diterjemahkan?

  • @RAKemal: Yeay! @EnglishTips4U are playing puns! They’re punchy! I don’t know why some people hate them..”
  • Well that’s the side effect to puns, some people don’t like it because it’s like non-sense jokes atau kita bilangnya jayus
  • But admin thinks puns are funny, entertaining, good exercise if you like playing with words, even learning new words :)
  • Maybe next time I should make an #EngGame or #EngQuiz where fellas create the puns :)
  • @RAKemal: What makes a pun worse is when you try to explain them. Hahaha”
  • @SheylaMcF: @RAKemal @EnglishTips4U what makes it the worst is when you’re being a translator and have to translate the puns to Indonesian :’/”
  • @RAKemal: Many things will get lost in translation, obvs.. @SheylaMcF
  • Of course, that’s another matter which can’t be avoided @RAKemal @SheylaMcF
