He'eh Meaning In Bahasa Indonesia

This time we're gonna talk about the meaning of "he'eh" in Bahasa Indonesia. Like in the previous article, we're gonna watch scenes from movies so that you can better understand and know how to pronounce it.

He'eh Meaning In Bahasa Indonesia

If you want to learn Bahasa Indonesia with me, you can just join my group. You can check it out on the About Me page.

So, let's get started.

He'eh In Bahasa Indonesia

He'eh is informal for yes or okay. When we're agreeing with what someone is saying then usually we say "he'eh". You will hear this a lot in conversation Indonesian.

How to Pronounce He'eh

Let's hear below. I have recorded my voice saying this word.


And now let's watch scenes from an Indonesia movie called Tetangga Masa Gitu.

He'eh In Movie Scenes

Let's watch our first scene from a movie titled Tetangga Masa Gitu, where the woman in that scene, agreed with what her husband was saying.


Below is the transcription from the conversation in that scene with English translation.
Husband: Wah, asyik nih rumahnya. Kelihatan penuh gitu ya sayang ya? (This house is so cool, isn’t it? Isn’t it looks so packed, honey?) 
Wife: He'eh. Ngga kaya rumah kita ya Bas, ya? Masih berasa kosong. (Yeah, you’re right. Not like our house. Still feels so empty.) 
Husband: Iya, namanya juga rumah baru. (Yeah, because our house is still new.)
So when you're agreed with what someone is saying then you can say "iya" for the formal version or you can say "he'eh" for the informal version.

You will hear "he'eh" a lot in daily conversation in Indonesia. Now, let's watch the second scene, still from the same movie.


And below is the transcription from the conversation in that scene with English translation.
A: Kamu kepengen punya meja pingpong di ruang tamu kamu, kan? (You want to have a ping pong table in your living room, right?) 
B: He'eh. (That's right.) 
A: Kamu ngga bakal dapet. (You won't get any.)
As you can see there is the word "dapet". It's the same meaning with "dapat". In an informal situation sometimes people write it like that, so don't be confused with the word "dapat" and "dapet". It's the same word. "Dapat" is more formal and "dapet" is informal and you'll see it in conversational Bahasa Indonesia.

And the last one, let's watch the third scene, still from the same movie. So, from the same movie, you heard so many "he'eh" in this short movie. This movie is only about 9 minutes long and you just heard 4 "he'eh" in it.

You will hear a lot of "he'eh" if you're in Indonesia because it's just the way Indonesian people say yes in the informal version.


And below is the transcription from the conversation in that scene with English translation.
A: Tadi istri kamu bilang, "Ide brilian tuh, Bas!" (Your wife said to you just now, “It’s a brilliant idea, Bas!”) 
B: He'eh. (Yeah.) 
A: Karena sebelumnya kamu nanya ke dia, "Ide brilian ngga tuh, Bi?" (Because you asked her before, “Isn’t it a brilliant idea, Bi?”) 
B: He'eh. (Yeah.)

Example Sentences

I'm gonna give you 3 example sentences using [he'eh]. First example.
A: Eh, loe jadi pergi kan? (You are going, aren’t you?) 
B: He’eh. (Yes.)

Second example.
A: Enak kan? (It’s delicious, right?) 
B: He’eh. Enak lho. (Yes, this is delicious.)

Third example.
A: Buku ini punya loe ya? (Is this book yours?) 
B: He’eh, itu punya gue. (Yes, that’s mine.)

I think that's all for the meaning of "he'eh" in Bahasa Indonesia. I hope you get the idea and understand what I just explained to you.

If you are still confused and want to ask me something, just make a comment in the comment section down below. Thank you very much.
