Indonesian Mini Stories Voice has strange accent
But wait, I'm confused, in the title you said Indonesian, but then you said Malaysian in the boxy of the text, before returning to Indonesian towards the end, could you please elaborate for those of us who are none the wiser?
I assumed she was from Kalimantan somewhere. She does in fact have a uvular R. I think the same girl did both Malay and Indonesian. I'm still glad we have LingQ Indonesian though.
Yes I’m also glad :)
Thanks, I'll check this with our content team, but honestly not sure if we will be able to replace this stories in the near future. We will definitely look into it and see what we can do to improve them over time.
If you could look into it would be nice :)
Is Indonesian still one of the beta status languages on Lingq? I was searching for forum entries about Indo topics and either I still don’t understand how to search or there aren’t so many entries. I think the awareness about these little things depends on the community but also natives among them noticing these details.
For my part I’ve lived long enough, the wee-years of my childhood, in Jakarta to tell you that it’s a bit off. It’s the r and maybe the ng sounds but with the ng I could be biased because I’m Javanese. Also Indonesian tend to not go up with their voice at the end of a sentence question but I’ve heard Malaysians do but this could be a textbook kind of situation.
