So, let's dive right in.

[Seuprit] means something that is very small or a very small amount of something.

Seuprit Example 02

3. Seuprit potret keluarga idaman dalam Al-Quran. (A little portrait of the ideal family in the Koran.)

Example of Seuprit 03

[Seuprit] here has the same meaning as [sedikit] or a little, so you can replace the word [seuprit] in this headline with the word [sedikit].

Here is how you pronounce [seuprit] in bahasa Indonesia.


Moving on, let's watch examples from videos and movies where Indonesians use the word [seuprit].

Examples of Seuprit In Use

The first example we are about to watch is taken from CNBC's YouTube channel. You can watch the full video here.

Let's watch the clip below.


Below is what the news anchor says in the clip above with English translations.

Pembawa Berita: Saya akan coba rangkum untuk Anda, ini, berapa angka UMP tertinggi dan terendah dari setiap provinsi dan prediksi inflasi ke depannya. Apakah UMP yang naiknya menurut para buruh ini seuprit sanggup mengejar biaya hidup yang baru dirilis BPS. Atau bisa jadi malah makin ngos-ngosan nih? Simak ya, dalam biaya hidup di Jakarta 15 juta rupiah, UMP 5 juta rupiah. Apakah kantong aman? Kita lihat slide yang pertama. (I will try to summarize for you, here, the highest and lowest UMP figures for each province and predictions of future inflation. Is the increase of UMP enough to keep up with the cost of living that was just released by BPS? Or is it just barely enough to make ends meet? Let's look at this headline, "The cost of living in Jakarta is 15 million rupiah, whereas the UMP is 5 million rupiah. Is it enough for a living?" Let's look at the first slide.)

[Seuprit] in this clip refers to the labor wage increase that the laborers consider very small.

[Ngos-ngosan] means to breathe loudly and with difficulty, trying to get more air. Synonym for [ngos-ngosan] is [terengah-engah]. [Ngos-ngosan] in this context refers to the wages that are very small, which makes it difficult to make ends meet for labor.
