Okay, so without further ado, let's talk about it.

Meaning of Nyeletuk in the Indonesian Language

[Nyeletuk] comes from the base word [celetuk], which means to say something suddenly and without careful thinking. Nyeletuk is a colloquial word in the Indonesian language.

Examples of Nyeletuk In Use

The first scene that we are about to watch is taken from a movie called Cinta Driver Online. Let's watch the clip down below.


Conversation from the scene with English translations is as follows.

Puri: Apa ya kira-kira kerjaan yang cocok buat kita? (What kind of job do you think is a good fit for us?)

Resya: Gini, gini. Lo kan ada mobil tu. Gue ada mobil. Gimana kalo kita berdua jadi driver taksi online? (Let me think. You have a car, and I have a car. How about if we become a rideshare driver?)

Puri: Nah! Pas banget itu! Cocok banget buat kita! (That's it! That's a good fit for us!)

Resya: Ha? Lo serius? Kan gue cuman nyeletuk ngasal doang, tau! (Really? You serious? I was just blurting.)

Puri: Ih, kenapa engga? Jadi driver taksi online itu lumayan lho penghasilannya. Bisa buat bayar wisuda. (Why not? The money that we can get as a rideshare driver is pretty good. In addition, we can pay for our graduation tuition fees.)

In this scene, Puri and Resya were thinking about getting a job because they have a lot of free time. And they were thinking of something that would be a good fit for them, and then Resya spontaneously said about becoming a rideshare driver.

All of a sudden, Puri agreed with Resya's spontaneous idea. In this scene, you can see that Resya said something spontaneously and without careful thinking. That is what is called [nyeletuk] in the Indonesian language.

Vocabulary From the Scene

[Kerjaan] is short for [pekerjaan] = jobs. In conversational Indonesian, we usually say [kerjaan] instead of [pekerjaan]. [Pekerjaan] is usually used in a more formal situation.

[Cocok] = fit.

[Buat] = for.

[Kita] = us.

[Gini] or [gini, gini] is usually used when you want to say something or explain something to someone.

[Lo] is informal for [Anda] = you. [Lo] is usually used in Jakarta and the city surroundings.

[Tu] is short for [itu] = that. Lo kan ada mobil tu. <--- [tu] in this sentence doesn't have any meaning. It just to emphasize.

[Berdua] = the two of something.

[Gimana] = how about, is usually used when you want to ask about something. [Gimana] is the colloquial way of saying [bagaimana]. Example: Gimana kabar loe? (How are you?)

[Kalo] is the colloquial way of saying [kalau] = if.

[Nah] is usually used when you agree with what someone has said.

[Banget] = very. [Banget] is usually used in conversational Indonesian, while [sekali] is used more formally. Example: Cantik sekali = cantik banget = very pretty.

[Pas banget] is usually said when something is really a good fit for something.

[Ngasal] means doing something carelessly. Example: Kalau kerja jangan ngasal! (Please do not work carelessly!) [Nyeletuk ngasal] here means that she just said something without careful thinking, even though [nyeletuk] itself means that way, the word [ngasal] here is just to emphasize that she was really said something without careful thinking.

[Kenapa engga] or [kenapa ngga] = why not?

[Driver taksi online] is how we say [a rideshare driver] in Indonesia.

[Penghasilan] = income.

[Lumayan] = not bad.

[Bayar] = to pay.

[Wisuda] = graduation.


So, I guess this is all for now. If I find another scene where this word [nyeletuk] is spoken, Insha Allah, I will update this article again.
