Tante, where is Oom?
The Indonesian language has been influenced a lot by the Dutch when it comes to culture. Like modern-day Bahasa Indonesia, but not all changes in the language are positive.
Is next month Maret?
Yes, it will be Maart next month.
"Oom" and "tante" are loanwords in the Indonesian language from Dutch that is usually used for someone older than you as a sign of respect.
Do you have a koran?
Yes I do have one, you can go get a kranten inside!
The fact that Dutch words are used to show respect to someone, would most likely mean that the Dutch were seen as "higher" people.
Can you please take my tas please?
These are some examples of loanwords in Indonesian from Dutch. Maret means March in Indonesian, and Maret was adapted from the word Maart.
Koran comes from the Dutch word kranten, which also has the same meaning. They both mean newspaper.
Tas comes from the Dutch word tas, they both have the same spelling and meaning. It means bag in both languages.
