DLS: days and weekends

Its Dusun Lotud Saturday (DLS). Every week on Saturday, I will share one situation and translate them to Dusun Lotud language. Today theme will be days and weekends. Why do I am sharing my ethnic language? I am not very good in my language because we don't speak any Dusun Language at home. Most of the time, we speak Malay. Sharing my language, hopefully will help me improve my Dusun Lotud vocabulary. My parents and friends will be my references. There is no dictionary for Dusun Lotud language yet. I am not sure if Kadazan already have a dictionary but there are many newspaper in kadazan. If I mistakenly do a wrong translation, please do correct me.

hi princessZ...glad to be here again....oh my, I like your outfit...so indigenous....it looks great on you!

thanks for sharing your dialect....:) I see a few similarities in our Philippine dialect...it goes like this:

koiso - kaisa (1)
koduwo - kaduwa (2)
kotolu - katulo (3)
kaapat - kaupat (4)
kolimo - kalima (5)
koonom - kaunom (6)

the difference is we use it through numbers not by days...pretty interesting...I learned something from yah!

Hi Zezebel, - Portuguese language is really hard, even translated into English a few sentences lose the meaning.

I tried more literal translation into English, I hope you understand.

Hugs.

i'M ASHAMED OF ME - Rui Barbosa

I'm ashamed of me ...
because I was an educator of these people,
because always I fought for justice,
for to collude with the honesty,
to fight for truth,
and by seeing these people, already called manly, heroic,
go down the path of dishonor.

I'm ashamed of me
for having been part of an era
who fought for democracy,
the freedom to be,
and having delivering it to my children,
simple and abominably,
the defeat of the virtues of the vices,
the lack of wisdom
in judging the truth,
the neglect of family,
mater cell of society,
the overwhelming preoccupation
with the "I" happy at any cost,
seeking such "happiness"
in roads riddled with disrespect
to his neighbor.

I am ashamed of me
by passive listening,
without dumping my verb,
so many excuses dictated
by pride and vanity,
so the lack of humility
to recognize a mistake committed,
so many "frills" to justify
criminal acts,
so reluctant to
to forget the old position,
ever contesting to back
and change the future.

I am ashamed of me
because I am part of a people who do not recognize,
embarking on paths
that I do not want to go ...

I am ashamed of my helplessness,
my lack of enthusiasm,
of my disappointments
and my tiredness.
I don't got where to go...
because I love this ground,
vibro to hear my anthem
and never wore my flag
to wipe my sweat
or curl my body
the sinful expressions of nationality.

Beside the shame of me,
I feel so sorry for you,
Brazilian people!

---------------------------------------
"Of both see the succeed of nonentities,
of both see prosper dishonor,
of both see grow the injustice,
from to see looming power in the hands of evil men,
the man comes to discourage virtue,
to laugh at honor,
to be ashamed to be honest. "

(Rui Barbosa)

Azizan: ya, tiap sabtu saya buat ruangan membaca. Susah nak buat, banyak perlu di buat tiap kali nak siapkan ruangan ni. Takde salahnya kita kongsi pengetahuan yg ada kan. Sharing your language is a good idea... You should do it.. :)

Zezebel said...

Roder : literal translation is really hard to do. But we will get better at it by continuously doing it. Thank you for sharing it in here, and yes, i can understand your translation.. :)

Zezebel said...

Azizan : *ruangan belajar bahasa dusun lotud* bukan ruangan membaca..huhu..
