Meaning of Dilebih-lebihin In the Indonesian Language

When someone exaggerates something, you can say that something is [dilebih-lebihin]. Or when you are making something look bigger when in fact, it is not that big.

[Dilebih-lebihin] is the informal version of [dilebih-lebihkan]. Both mean the same. In a more casual way, there is also a term called [lebay], which also means the same as both [dilebih-lebihin] and [dilebih-lebihkan].

I have made an article where I discuss the meaning of [lebay], and in that article, there are a lot of example scenes from movies that you can see to better understand this. You can read it here, Meaning of Lebay In the Indonesian Language.


Examples of Dilebih-lebihin In Use

In this section, you will see examples from movies, youtube videos, and everything where the phrase [dilebih-lebihin[ is spoken.

The first example is from a talk show on Vindes' youtube channel. Let's watch the clip below.


Below is the conversation from the scene with English translations.

Desta: Tapi, Wulan bener loe Lan, gue ngeliat loe emang ngga pernah.. kaya ngga pernah bertambah umur, gitu. (This is true. Whenever I look at you, you’re like, never grow old.)

Wulan: Masa sih? (Really?)

Desta: Gue jaman.. Kita ngefans dari awal di Pondok Indah ya? (When I was.. We've been her fans since the beginning of Pondok Indah, right?)

Vincent: Iya, ya, ya. (Yes, yes, yes.)

Desta: Tuh kan! Suka dilebih-lebihin deh. (Oh, come on. You like to exaggerate things.)

Desta: Ngga dilebih-lebihin. Ya orang kenyataan. (No, I'm not exaggerating. This is a fact.)  

Vincent: Pertama kali ketemu.. (The first time we met..)

Wulan: Alhamdulillah. (Praise be to God.)

In this scene, you see that the phrase [dilebih-lebihin] collocates with the word [suka]. They usually go together, [suka dilebih-lebihin].

Vocabulary From the Scene

[Bener loe (someone's name)] <--- this phrase is usually used when you want to emphasize something that you are going to say is true and that you are not making this up.

[Ngelihat] is the colloquial way of saying [melihat] = to look at something.

[Loe] is informal for [Anda]. You can read my article, Loe Meaning In Bahasa, for more about this.

[Umur] = age.

[Bertambah] = increase.

[Orang] in this sentence [ya orang kenyataan] doesn't mean a person. [Orang] in this sentence is used to emphasize the word after it, [kenyataan]. You can say it in other words, [ya orang kenyataan] = [ya kan kenyataan].

[Ngga] is the informal way of saying [tidak] = no.
