View Full Version : "Stop!" in Bahasa Indonesia?

Anyone who speaks Bahasa Indonesia, can you help with this query for another author?

The situation is that a woman in Jakarta approaches a checkpoint manned by a US soldier. He knows enough Bahasa to say "Stop" or "Halt" - so what does he say?

Not a native speaker, but this is what I found:

mandek, berhenti, menggencat, perhentian, jegal

Maybe someone with more on the ground experience can tell you which one is most accurate.

Have to tell you though, it would be very, very tough for a US soldier to be manning a checkpoint in Jakarta, of all places!

Speculative fiction, what can I say?
