So, without further ado, let's dive in! 

Beut or Bet Meaning In Indonesian

[Beut] is considered slang in bahasa Indonesia. Some Indonesians write it as [beut], and some write it as [bet]; both mean the same thing.

[Beut] or [bet] means [very] in English. [Beut] or [bet] has the same meaning as [banget] and [sekali]. [Banget] is considered a colloquial word, and you will hear it in daily conversation in Indonesia, whereas [sekali] is more formal.

Example sentences:

  1. Gue laper beut. (I'm very hungry).
  2. Aku laper banget. (I'm very hungry).
  3. Saya lapar sekali. (I'm very hungry).
The three sentences above mean the same thing. The first sentence is considered slang, the second sentence is more often heard in daily conversation, and the third sentence is the most formal of all.

How to Pronounce Beut

Here is how you pronounce [beut] or [bet] in bahasa Indonesia.

Moving on, let's look at examples where the word [beut] or [bet] is used and spoken by Indonesians.

Examples of Beut In Use

The first example we are about to watch is from Bang Mpin's YouTube channel. Let's look at the clip below.

Below is what Bang Mpin says in the clip above with English translations.

Bang Mpin: Amin. Pasca makan siang nih. Gue laper beut. Sayang sambelnya habis. Nih! Mantep, ya? Tebel! Pake telor bebek lho. Takis? (Amen. It is after lunchtime. I’m so hungry. Too bad the sambal has run out. Look at this! It’s so good, right? It’s thick! This one uses duck eggs. Let’s dig in?)

Juru Kamera: Takis boss. (Go ahead, boss.)

Bang Mpin says, "Gue laper beut," which means he is very hungry in this clip.

Vocabulary From the Clip

[Juru kamera] = camera men.

[Pasca] means after something.

[Makan siang] = lunch. [Makan siang] spoken in here refers to [jam makan siang] actually.

[Jam makan siang] = lunchtime.

[Sambal] or [sambel] is an Indonesian chili sauce that looks like the picture below.

The second example is taken from a post by TTS Komik on Instagram. Let's look at the picture below.
