Halo semuanya. Apa kabar? Ketemu lagi kita. This time, I want to talk to you about the meaning of the [mampus], and as always, we will watch a video where this word is spoken.

Mampus In Indonesian Language

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, without further ado, let's talk about this.

The Meaning of Mampus In the Indonesian Language

Mampus has the same meaning as [mati] and [meninggal]. All of those words mean [dead]. [Meninggal] is the most polite, and [mampus] is the rudest.

Sometimes you hear this word is being used when talking trash to someone. For example:
1. Rasain loe! Biar mampus! (Eat that! I hope that you're dead!)
And below is the audio version of the sentence.


Second example sentence.
2. Mampus aja loe! (I hope that you're dead!)
And below is the audio version of the sentence.


But [mampus] can also be used to emphasize something that is too hard or impossible to do.
3. Sampai mampus juga gue ngga bakalan bisa ngerjain ini mah! (I think I will never ever be able to do this even if I keep trying until I'm dead.)
Below is the audio version of the sentence.


In Jakarta, [mampus] can also mean [very]. For example, in the video, you're going to watch: [Kaya mampus] means very rich.
4. Loe tahu ngga? Keluarganya dia kaya mampus lho! (You know what? Her family is very very rich!)
Here is the audio version of the example sentence.


This next example also means [very].
5. Eh, udah nyobain makanan itu belum? Enak mampus! Loe kudu nyobain! (Have you tried that food? It's very, very delicious! You have to try it sometimes.)
Here is the audio version of the example sentence.


I once talked to my friend, she is from Jogjakarta, and she is wondering why is [mampus] in Jakarta means [very] wherein in Jogja, it's just means [dead]. In Jakarta, it's common to use [mampus], which means [very] if you want to emphasize how something is very delicious, very hard, very beautiful, etc.

How to Pronounce Mampus

Let's hear how to pronounce [mampus] in the video below.


Next, we will watch a video that I took from youtube where this word [mampus] is spoken.

Mampus In Use

I found a video where the word [mampus] is used. This video belongs to Eno Bening's youtube channel. Let's watch the short video below where Eno said this word [mampus].


And below is what Eno said with English translations.

Eno Bening: Kalo kalian masih belum tahu, gue ngga pernah terlahir dari keluarga yang sangat kaya. Bahkan cukup kaya, ngga. Ngga pernah. Kalo kalian semua menduga gue adalah dari keluarga yang kaya mampus, gitu. Atau keluarga yang istilahnya, ya cukup kayalah gitu. Itu salah besar. Salah besar. (I was never born in a very rich family, for those who don't know me. Never! If you guys all think that I come from a very rich family or a wealthy family, you are wrong. Very wrong.)

In this clip, Eno collocates the word [mampus] with the word [kaya]. In this case, [kaya mampus] means [very very rich].


I think that's it for now. If I find another video or a clip from a movie where this word is spoken, Insha Allah, I will update this article again. Bye now.
