Without further ado, let's get started!

Buruan In The Indonesian Language

[Buruan] can have many meanings. The first meaning of [buruan] is an animal hunted by another animal, or in English, usually called prey. The second meaning of [buruan] is a criminal whom the police are looking for to arrest. The third meaning of [buruan] is to hurry up.

An example sentence for the first meaning of [buruan]. Let's look at the headline from a news website that I just screenshotted.

Buruan Example Sentence 01

As we can see from the picture above, it is written,
Jenis-jenis hewan buruan di darat dan di pohon. (Types of prey on the land and the trees.)
In this example sentence, [buruan] collocates with [hewan]. [Hewan buruan] means animals that are being hunted by humans.

Below is the audio version of the example sentence above.


Next, an example sentence for the second meaning of [buruan]. Let's look at the picture below that I took from a headline of an article on a website.

Buruan Example Sentence 02

As we can see from the picture above, it is written,
Kasus kekerasan BPR Solo, 4 pelaku masuk daftar buruan polisi. (Violence case in BPR Solo, four perpetrators are on the police wanted list.) 
Here is the audio version of the example sentence.


Next, an example sentence for the third meaning of [buruan]. Let's see the picture below.

Buruan Example Sentence 03

As we can see from the picture above, it is written.,
Buruan kirim lamaran pekerjaan, Google Indonesia lagi buka banyak lowongan. (Hurry up send your job application! Google Indonesia is opening many vacancies.)
[Buruan] in this sentence means to hurry up. Below is the audio version of the example sentence.


Next, we will learn how to pronounce the word [buruan].

How to Pronounce Buruan

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


Next, we will watch scenes from movies where the word [buruan] is spoken.

Buruan In Movie Scenes

The first clip you are about to watch is taken from a movie called Tempe Mendoan Bumbu Cinta.
Let's watch the clip down below.


Conversation in the scene with English translations is as follows.

Elsa: Ayo, buruan! (Come on. Hurry up!)

Marvin: Ih! Sabar kenapa sih? Loe kenapa sih marah-marah terus dari tadi? (Hey, why don’t you be patient a bit? Why are you angry all the time?)

Elsa: Iya, iya, tapi gue udah ditungguin sama bos gue. Lo lama sih! (Okay, but my boss have been waiting for me. You took too long!)

Marvin: Iya, santai aja! Ngga usah pake marah-marah. (Hey, chill out! No need to be angry.)

Elsa: Ah! Yuk, buruan! Cepet ah! (Hey! Come on. Let's go!)

Marvin: Iye, ntar dulu. (I know, just a sec.)

Elsa: Udah ngga usah diangkat! (Just don't pick up the phone!)

Marvin: Bentar! Ini siapa tahu penting. Halo, sayang. (Hold on! Maybe this is an important call. Hello, honey.)

[Buruan] in this scene means [to hurry up]. In the scene, Elsa said [buruan] to Marvin because her boss has been waiting for her in the office, so she needs to be in a rush.


Vocabulary From the Scene
[Sabar] = [to be patient].

[Loe] is informal for [Anda] = you. For more about this, you can read my article, Loe Meaning In the Indonesian Language.

[Marah] = to be angry.

[Ditungguin] comes from the base word [tunggu], which means [to wait]. [Ditungguin], in this case, is in a passive voice, which means that she has been waited by someone. Someone, in this case, is Elsa's boss.

[Ntar] is short for [sebentar]. [Ntar], in this case, is used to ask for someone to wait for a moment. [Bentar] is also short for [sebentar].

[Diangkat] in literal meaning means being lifted up, but in this case, [diangkat] means to pick up the phone because, as you can see from the scene, Marvin's phone was ringing. Someone was calling him. And then the woman said to Marvin to not pick up the phone.


So, I think that's all for now. If you have any questions, just post them in the comment section down below, and I'll be happy to answer your questions. Thank you and bye now.
