Without further ado, let's talk about the meaning of [atasan].

Meaning of Atasan In the Indonesian Language

The first meaning of [atasan] is superior, or boss. Example sentence: Dia adalah atasan saya di kantor ini. (He is my boss in this office).

The second meaning of [atasan] is an item of clothing that covers the upper body. If you type in [atasan pria] on Google, you will get this picture. [Pria] means men.

Example of Atasan Pria

And if you type [atasan wanita] on Google, you will get this picture. [Wanita] means women.

Example of Atasan Wanita

The third meaning of [atasan] is higher. Example sentence: Fotonya bisa tolong agak atasan dikit? (Can you move the photo a bit higher?)

Examples of Atasan In Use

In this section, you will see examples from movie scenes, youtube videos, or anything where a word [atasan] is being spoken.

The first example is from a TV series, Suami-suami Masa Kini Episode 1 (2022). Let's watch the clip below.

Below is what she said in the clip above with English translations.

Tania: Jadi, gini pak Santoso. Saya disuruh dateng ke sini oleh atasan kamu. Dan tadi saya sudah telpon dia. Dia bilang silakan aja, saya tinggal datang aja ke sini. Gitu, pak. (So, here's the thing, Mr. Santoso. I've been told to come here by your superior, and I've called him, and he said that I could just come here. That's what he said.)

In this scene, [atasan] means boss or superior. Let's learn the vocabulary that is used in this short clip.

Vocabulary From the Scene

[Jadi, gini..] is usually used when you want to start explaining something to someone.

[Saya] = I.

[Disuruh] = be commanded.

[Dateng] is informal for [datang], and usually, in daily conversation, Indonesian people say [dateng] rather than [datang]. Tania said [dateng] in the first sentence, but in the next sentence, she said [datang]. [Dateng] = [datang] = to come.

[Kamu] = you.

I guess this wraps up this article. If I find another example where the word [atasan] is spoken, Insha Allah, I will update this article again.
