Blog, citramaya, lamancitra, lacitra, blogger dan citrawan

Posting terbaru saya mengundang pelbagai reaksi. Ada yang setuju dan ada yang sebaliknya. Inilah lumrah sesuatu yang baru. Saya amat insaf akan fenomena seperti ini. Bagaimanapun, ramai di kalangan pembaca yang terkeliru. Saya ketengahkan istilah lamancitra atau citramaya bagi blog dan citrawan bagi blogger semata-mata untuk menyahut saranan Menteri Penerangan, Komunikasi dan Kebudayaan, Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim. Tidak lebih dan tidak kurang daripada niat itu.

Bagaimanapun, saya serahkan kepada anda semua. Saya sendiri selesa dengan istilah blog dan blogger. Kalau kemudian hari ada pihak nak mengistilahkan blog sebagai lamancitra, silakan. Dan, kalau nak istilahkan blogger sebagai citrawan pun apa salahnya. Segala-galanya terserah kepada keselesaan kita.

Tetapi, walaupun saya bukan pakar bahasa, usaha yang saya lakukan bukannya kerja mengarut. Ini kerana peristilahan bukannya domain eksklusif pakar bahasa. Persitilahan juga wujud daripada pengamal sesuatu bidang tertentu. Pengkayaan khazanah peristilahan sesuatu bangsa juga bukannya boleh terjadi dengan sekelip mata.

Biarpun begitu, sesuatu istilah juga kadang-kadang wujud menerusi suatu situasi yang lucu dan tidak disangka-sangka. Oleh itu, dalam sejuta kelucuan, bagaimana agaknya kalau kita istilahkan blog sebagai LACITRA (singkatan kepada laman citra tapi bunyi macam labamba) dan blogger sebagai CITRAWAN? – Ruhanie Ahmad

Salam Datuk,

Sekadar cadangan dan cetusan dari saya, blog juga boleh ditafsirkan sebagai suatu bentuk kalam dalam ruang siber maya seumpama juga salah satu bentuk karya. Istilah gabungan kalam dan maya saya cetuskan sebagai KALAMAYA bagi blog dan KALAMAYAWAN bagi blogger.

Namun seperti juga Datuk, saya juga sendiri selesa dengan istilah blog dan blogger.

Wasalam.

PAS vice-president Datuk Husam Musa condemned the arrests of political activists, saying they were “a clear indication of a desperate move by the Barisan Nasional to stop the mammoth gathering” planned for Thursday in Ipoh.

In a statement to The Star, Husam urged for the immediate release of the detainees, saying “the credibility of the country, in the eyes of the world, is at stake.”

comment:

Well done, Hishamuddin. Forget about being popular. You have a job to ensure that the security of the country is intact. Prevention is better than cure.

Talking about credibility of the country in the eyes of the world is at stake is just RUBBISH.

In fact the world will admire and respect us more for maintaining peace, stability and security so that the majority of the people could carrying on with their life peacefully.

Yes, Hisham, you must act without fear and favour to ensure that those undesirable leaders don't behave like "clowns" trying to disturb the rakyat with all sorts of funny antics demonstrated by them in order to gain popularity.

Their stupid "antics" is out of fashion. Nothing to be proud of!!!Very disgusting, indeed.

The Selangor Government will launch a programme to turn Mat Rempit into useful citizens, said Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.


“We will announce the programme in two or three months’ time. We want to change their (Mat Rempit) ways so that they will no longer be regarded as menaces to society,” he said.

comment:

Lets monitor in 3 months time what kind of pragramme this "textbook" Mentri Besar is initiating to turn the Mat Rempit into useful citizen.

Jangan cakap tak serupa bikin. Sampai masanya dia pun lupa apa yang dia cakap dulu.

Actually, this Mentri Besar of Selangor is not an intelligent person. He looks like an intellectual but actually he is just a lucky person being with the right "godfather" (the late Tun Ismail) at the right time and place.

The way he expresses himself on certain issues, you will find that he is having difficulty to explain to the public in a clear and concise manner. All vague and a lot of contridictions and confusions.

Mungkin pasal dia GAGAP kut.

Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir said he is not bothered where Barisan Nasional (BN) state assemblymen will be seated during the State Assembly session starting Thursday.

An English newspaper today reported former menteri besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as saying that he expected a tussle for seats to occur tomorrow.

comment:

If this happens I think all the Pakatan ADUN must have come out from Hendry Gurney School!! What a shame having such idiotic bunch of low mentality ADUN !!

Salam Dato,

Saya sanjung usaha Dato dalam memperkenalkan istilah-istilah itu. Bahasa Melayu amat kurang istilah sains & teknologi. Orang Melayu kini kian menganuti PPSMI. Semua orang terlalu sibuk belajar Bahasa Inggeris tapi berapa kerat sangat insan yang berusaha untuk memperkaya dan memperkukuhkan Bahasa Melayu.

Tun Mahathir sendiri pun saya kira sudah tidak berminat lagi untuk memperkasakan Bahasa Melayu, apatah lagi pada penghujung usianya. Walaupun dia kata dia berjuang untuk Bahasa Melayu tapi akhirnya yang menang Bahasa Inggeris juga. Akhirnya yang tinggal hanya Pak Samad Said dan rakan-rakan beliau. Itupun dicop alat parti pembangkang.

Syabas Dato, biarpun perkataannya tidak seringkas ejaan 'blog' atau 'blogger', tak jadi masalah. Sudah jadi tabiat orang Melayu tak suka benda panjang-panjang, asyik nak 'short-cut' saja.

Time to declare emergency or better still declare Perak state as as having "absolute monarchy system". Kuasa balik semula kepada Sultan Melayu jajahan Negeri Perak. I still remember when the late Tun Ismail made a public statement on TV telling the rakyat that DEMOCRACY IS DEAD.

Yes, history would soon repeat itself. DEMOCRACY IS DEAD AND THIS TIME FOR GOOD.

Actually, I am a monarchist and a typical conservative person of old generation. I believe in "guided democratic feudal system" if there is such a term.

I don't believe in absolute Westminster parliamentary democracy. It is a nuisance because our multi-racial rakyat are inclined to take advantage by abusing the system. The rakyat are still not matured enough to practise the system even after 50 years of practising it.

So in order to prevent anarchy and causing a lot of distractions to the daily life of the rakyat I think the most appropriate thing to do is for the rakyat "berpayong semula bersama Raja Melayu".

Daulat Tuanku ! Daulat Tuanku ! Daulat Tuanku !!
