KATA PENGANTAR

 

Puji dan syukur penulis panjatkan kepada Allah SWT, atas segala rahmat dan hidayah yang telah dilimpahkan-Nya sehinnga diktat/materi pembelajaran matakuliah umum Bahasa Inggris dapat penulis selesaikan dengan baik.

Pada umumnya kemampuan berbahasa Inggris mahasiswa kita masih rendah dan belum menunjukkan minat yang memadai untuk mempelajari bahasa tersebut baik itu kemampuan produktif maupun kemampuan reseptif. Hal ini bisa disebabkan oleh banyak hal seperti kurangnya kesempatan untuk pelajar bahasa Inggris dalam penggunaan bahasa tersebut.

Berdasarkan pemikiran diatas, materi Bahasa Inggris ini diharapkan dapat menjadi salah satu materi pegangan mahasiswa dalam meningkatkan minat dan kemampuan berbahasa Inggris. Selain materi ini, diharapkan juga kepada mahasiswa untuk tetap belajar dan mencari sumber-sumber referensi lainnya yang dapat mendukung kemampuan berbahasa Inggris mereka.

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)

(Composed by Michael Heart)

Copyright 2009

A blinding flash of white light

Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight

People running for cover

Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes

With ravaging fiery flames

And nothing remains

Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

 

Women and children alike

Murdered and massacred night after night

While the so-called leaders of countries afar

Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain

And the bombs fell down like acid rain

But through the tears and the blood and the pain

You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down

In the night, without a fight

You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools

But our spirit will never die

We will not go down

In Gaza tonight

The Legend of Nyai Brintik

One day, the Kingdom of Demak held a washing ceremony of all kerises of the kingdom. It was an important event. It was held annually. A lot of people were flooded there to see the ceremony. They wanted to see a variety of supernatural kerises. The sacred ceremony was usually led by Sunan Kalijaga. Unfortunately, because he had another duty from the kingdom, the job of a washing ceremony of all kerises was led by Sunan Muria.

Meanwhile, on a hill not far from the Kingdom of Demak, there was a very beautiful woman. Her name was Nyai Bintik. People called Nyai Bintik because she had curled hair. Beside she was beautiful, she also had supernatural power. She got her supernatural from a hermit named Patih Danurejo from the Kingdom of Wengker. Nyai Berintik was one of the persons who wanted to see the washing ceremony of all kerises of theKingdom of Demak. She was in the middle of the crowd.

The ceremony of washing the kerises began. Two of the kerises that would be washed were Kyai Sengkelat and Kyai Pasupati. Most of the people who wanted to get a blessing from the two kerises were fighting to get the splash of water used in the ceremony of washing the kerises.

Suddenly, when the two kerises were taken out from the wooden box, Nyai Brintik grabbed them swiftly from Sunan Muria and flew away. Sunan. All of the people there were surprised at that event. Nyai Brintik could not be stopped. She disappeared like being swallowed by the earth.

The news about the loss of the two kerises shook the Kingdom ofDemak. The King of Demak took an action quickly by sending his special team to catch her. The result was good. One of his men managed to find out her hiding place. It was on a high hill with big trees and wild animals.

It was late at night, Nyai Brintik woke up and saw the two kerises. She said to her self that she would be the powerful woman in the region. She could do anything with the two kerises.

Feeling hot inside the hiding place, Nyai Barntik went out. She looked at the sky and the stars. Then she got into the hiding place. Suddenly, she saw a man standing in front of the door.

“Who are you?”, said Nyai Brintik.

Then the man told her that he was sent by the King od Demak to take the two kerises from Nyai Bintik. Hearing that, Nyai Brintik got angry and attached him. Unfortunately, she missed her attack. The man could avoid her strike. Frustrated, she got out her keris and stabbed it to the man. She missed again but the man ran away. His body felt too hot of her keris. Then he fell down a few meters before Nyai Bintik.

Suddenly, there was a mysterious man appearing before Nyai Bintik. He told her to return the two kerises.

“Nyai Bintik, the two kerises are not yours. If you want to be safe, you must return them soon. It’s of no use having the two kerises. Please give them to me”, said the mysterious man.

 

Hearing such advice, Nyai Bintik got angry and attached him at once. Unfortunately, she missed her attack. Nyai Bintik used up all of her strength, but the man kept calm and managed to avoid Nyai Brintik’s attack. At last, Nyai Bintik became tired and hopeless after fighting for many hours. She fell down and kneeled to that man. She lost her strength. She also wondered to know who exactly the man was.

“Nyai Bintik, you should know. I’m Sunan Kalijaga”, the man said calmly.

Then Nyai Bintik was aware that there was still a man whose supernatural power was above her. She did not feel arrogant again. She did not oppress the others.

“Here you are, Kanjeng Sunan”, said Nyai Brintik. She gave the two kerises to Sunan Kalijaga. The two kerises were taken to the Kingdom ofDemak.

The King of Demak had a special meeting to welcome the return of the two kerises. It was attended by all ministers, regents and also all Sunans.

“Thank you, Kanjeng Sunan Kalijaga”, said the King. The two kerises had returned to the palace. The King asked all of the audience to stay for a while in the palace to discuss about the future of Demak.

Since that event, Nyai Brintik became one of Sunan Kalijaga’s students. She was smart, brilliant and loyal to the Kingdom of Demak. Besides, she always used her supernatural power to help the others.

A few years later, Nyai Brintik passed away and she was buried inMount Brintik in Semarang. Her cemetery is often visited by a lot of people up to now.

Kata benda (Subyek), kata kerja atau predikat dan pola kalimat lain dapat digabungkan.

Pelajarilah contoh-contoh berikut:

NOUN PHRASE VERB PHRASE
Kata Benda + Kata Benda Kata kerja + Kata Kerja

Diatas merupakan contoh-contoh kalimat yang subyek dan predikatnya digabungkan.  Bagian subyek kalimat disebut frasa nomina (noun phrase), sedangkan bagian kalimat yang menyatakan apa yang dilakukan subyek disebut frasa verba (verba phrase) atau predikat. Frasa nomina dapat terdiri atas satu atau lebih kata benda, ditambah modifier dan penghubung. Pada sebagian pola kalimat, frasa nomina juga berisi komplemen dan obyek.

Penyesuaian (agreement)

Penyesuaian Subyek dan Predikat

Kalimat-kalimat berikut semuanya menggunakan kata kerja waktu sekarang (present tense).

Mr. Brown teaches

He is lecturing

His students are listening

They don’t study

He doesn’t approve

 

Subyek tunggal pada orang ketiga, seperti he dan Mr. Brown yang diikuti oleh do, bentuknya ditambah –s sehingga menjadi does, baik sebagai kata kerja sekarang ataupun sebagai kata Bantu kata kerja.

 

Penyesuaian dan Penggabungan Subyek

Subyek yang digabungkan sering membuat bingung dalam menyesuaikan subyek dan predikatnya.

  1. Kalau bagian-bagian subyek yang digabungkan dihubungkan dengan and, baik tunggal maupun jamak, kata kerja yang digunakan harus berbentuk jamak.

 

They boys and girls are playing

Rudi and Siska approve

 

  1. Jika bagian-bagian subjek yang digabungkan tunggal dan dihubungkan dengan penghubung seperti or, nor, either…or, neither …nor, not only…but also kata kerja yang digunakan harus berbentuk tunggal.

 

Either Susan or her friend is expected

Neither Budi nor Wibi studies

 

  1. Jika bagian-bagian subyek yang digabungkan dihubungkan oleh or, nor, either…or, neither..nor, not only..but also dan berbeda dalam jumlah orangnya, bagian yang paling dekat dengan kata kerja yang menentukan bentuk kata kerjanya.

 

Neither Ucok nor his brothers help

Not only the students but also Mrs. Black is waiting

 

Penyesuaian dan Kata Benda yang Artinya majemuk

Kadang-kadang kata benda yang bentuknya tunggal dapat digunakan dalam pengertian jamak.

The crowd were waving their hands and shouting

The committee were arguing

 

Tetapi biasanya kata-kata benda seperti class (kelas), group (kelompok), committee (panitia), jury (yuri) disebut kata benda majemuk dan dianggap berbentuk tunggal sehingga kata kerjanya ditambah –s.

 

The committee is meeting

The jury has been dismissed

 

Bentuk kata kerja dan kata Bantu yang bentuknya tidak berubah dalam penyesuaian

Kalimat-kalimat berikut berkata kerja lampau:

The books came

The book came

I came

They worked

Susan worked

We worked

Bentuk lampau kata kerja tidak berubah apabila orang atau jumlah subyek berubah. Peratuan ini juga berlaku untuk modal. Pada pasangan kalimat berikut, kata Bantu tidak berubah tanpa melihat orang atau jumlah subyeknya.

Mr. brown will lecture at eight o’clock

The students will listen

Mrs. Black and her children must leave early

I must go to the post office

What can I do for you?

Can I help you?
