Sometimes [aja] doesn't have any meaning at all. It functions only to emphasize. Example sentence: Darimana aja sih kamu? Jam segini baru pulang. (Where have you been? At this hour just got home.) [Aja] in this example sentence only to emphasize the word [darimana]. The one asking this question really wants to know where she or he has been gone for the time being.


How to Pronounce Aja

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

Next, we will watch clips where this word [aja] is spoken.


Aja In Movie Scenes

This clip is taken from a TV Program called Tetangga Masa Gitu. Let's watch the clip below.


What Bastian said in the clip with English translations is as follows.
Bastian: Hari libur di rumah aja nih, mas? (Just staying in the house on holiday like this, mas?)
As you can see in the scene, Bastian drops the letter [s] in [saja] and just pronounce it [aja] instead of [saja].

Vocabulary from the scene
[Hari] = day

[Libur] = holiday, day off.

[Rumah] = house.

[Mas] is an honorific title used to address men older than we are. You can read more about this in this article, Mas Meaning In the Indonesian Language.

So, I think that's all for now, and if I find another scene where this word [aja] is spoken, Insha Allah, I will update this article again so that you can see other sentences that are using the word [aja]. Bye now.
