What Are You Talking About In Indonesian

Today we're going to talk about how to say "what are you talking about" in Bahasa Indonesia. I will give you a couple of different ways to say this sentence in Bahasa Indonesia. 

If you want to ask me about a specific topic or have difficulties with something in the Indonesian language, you can just ask me. You can check it out on the About Me page how you can ask me.

So let's get started.

What Are You Talking About

To talk in Bahasa Indonesia means bicara or berbicara or in informal you can say "ngomong". So "what are you talking about" in a formal Indonesian language you can say like this,
Apa yang sedang Anda bicarakan?
And you can hear me saying this sentence down below.


Or you can also say like this,
Apa yang sedang kamu bicarakan?
You can hear me saying this sentence down below.


Those two if you are talking to one person. If you are talking to more than one person, you can use "kalian" and the sentence will become like this,
Apa yang sedang kalian bicarakan?
You can hear me saying this sentence down below.


This sentence still sounds formal, and if you want to sound a bit informal you can say like this,
Apa yang sedang kamu omongin?
You can hear me saying this sentence down below.


In this sentence, we change the word "bicarakan" with "omongin". It has the same meaning but "omongin" is used more in colloquial Indonesian. "Omongin" comes from the basic word "omong" which means "talking". We use this word every day in our daily conversation.

If you are talking to more than one person, you can change "kamu" with "kalian" and then the sentence will become like this.
Apa yang sedang kalian omongin?
And you can hear me pronounce this sentence down below.


Or you can like this,
Kamu lagi ngomongin apaan sih?
You can hear me saying this sentence down below.


Or you can say like this, it has the same meaning.
Kamu lagi ngomongin apa sih?
You can hear me saying this sentence down below.


And if you are talking to more than one person you can use the word "kalian" and say like this,
Kalian lagi ngomongin apaan sih?
You can hear me pronounce this sentence down below.


Or you can also say like this if you are talking to more than one person.
Lagi pada ngomongin apaan sih?
I'm pronouncing the sentence down below.


In here we change the word "sedang" with "lagi". These 2 words have the same meaning but "lagi" is used more in colloquial language.

Using The Word Loe

Or you can say like this. You can change the word "kamu" with "loe" and sometimes "loe" is written as "lu" or "lo". The meaning is the same but sometimes Indonesian people write that differently. But it is the same word.

Loe is a word that is used by people who live in Jakarta, but it is now spreading all over Indonesia. As you can see in one of my articles, you can watch a scene that I took from a movie that uses this kind of word. You can watch that scene in my article titled, Learning Bahasa Indonesia Through Comics 001.

You can say like this,
Loe lagi ngomongin apaan sih?
You can hear me saying this sentence down below.


Next, if I found a scene from movies, I would update this article and put the scene from that movie here. But if you have any questions that you want to ask regarding Bahasa Indonesia, just ask me and I will be glad to answer your question.

I think that's a wrap and this is all for now. I'll talk to you soon, and bye now.
