Vocabulary Building in Indonesian
An Advanced Reader

By Soenjono Dardjowidjojo

“This is another outstanding educational publication by the author of Sentence Patterns of Indonesia (1978). Soenjono’s new book is aimed at bridging the gap between the basic knowledge of formal Indonesian provided by the many elementary textbooks, and the reality of socially determined levels of speech, as well as the language found in modern Indonesian newspapers and magazines.”

Roger Tol, Academic and University Publishers Group

An outstanding advanced text intended to complement and supplement Indonesian language materials now available. The author takes the student through a series of original essays and previously published material on a variety of subjects, not merely explaining grammatical and vocabulary matters, but offering detailed discussions of nuances, alternative meanings, synonyms and antonyms. This unique vocabulary exploration device forms about one–third of the book, and makes the lessons powerful aids to efficient and in–depth language learning.
