I’m back now after 14 years. I’m here to help you with your Bidayuh (Jagoi) language translation. I don’t mean to necropost this thread but it seems like this thread is still pretty much relevant to this date. So here goes:

Pain -> Monam
Sick -> Brandam
Sneezing -> Prasim
Cough -> Mokod
Headache -> Monam bak
Tired -> Kowok
Sleepy -> Nundu’
Drink water -> Nuok pi’in
Drink a lot of water -> Nuok pi’in bogo’ bogo’
Take medicine -> Man ubat
Mouth -> Boba’
Nose -> Inung
Throat -> Gaguang
Warm/Hot -> Bongoh
Go -> Odi
See the doctor -> Odi nudu doktor / Odi berubat
Stay safe -> Nakit jaga odop mu / ngan (elder)
Stay at home -> Lo’o dak boli

Gawai is just around the corner but due to COVID-19, no big gathering is allowed for visiting.

Gawai -> Gawea
Hari Gawai -> Onu gawea
Visiting -> Ngabang
House -> Boli
Meet -> Bidapod
Tomorrow -> Tiak pagi
This morning -> Pagi tih
This evening -> Tiak ngumi
Tonight -> Tiak ngarom

Please note that Biatah (Padawan and Penrisen), Singai, Semeba, Serembu, Serian all has different accents, dialects, and whatnot words. If you find something wrong with my (Jagoi) translation, please inform me so I can edit them with the correct one.

Happy learning!
