Kata Ganti Sebagai ‘Korban’ – Objective Pronoun



Gatra Dewata – Pembaca setia Gatra Dewata yang baru bergabung mohon untuk tertib ya! Pembahasan hari ini merupakan kelanjutan edisi yang lalu tentang subjective pronoun.

Namun, akan lebih baik jika anda memahami Subject Pronoun sebelum melangkah ke pembahasan yang satu ini. Untuk itu silahkan buka kembali pembahasan sebelumnya – klik DISINI.

“Object Pronoun (OP) merupakan kata ganti untuk menyatakan orang atau benda – baik dalam bentuk tunggal maupun jamak – sebagai objek.”

Jadi, jika anda menyusup kedalam OP maka posisi anda adalah sebagai orang yang akan mendapatkan perlakuan, entah itu baik maupun buruk, tergantung karma anda selama ini.

Simak contoh berikut untuk dapat lebih mudah memahaminya:

Skenarionya, pada pertarungan tinju kelas berat akhir pekan lalu saya mengalahkan abang anda di ronde ke tiga. Dalam hal ini abang andalah yang mengisi posisi sebagai OP, karena dialah yang mendapat perlakuan dari saya. Dialah yang saya pukuli sepanjang tiga ronde sampai babak belur dibagian mata dan dagu, sebagai bonus – darah segar mengucur dari hidungnya.

Bahasa Inggrisnya: I beat him on the third round last weekend.”

Saya ulangi, kata ‘I’ disini berlaku sebagai SP (masih inget, kan?), sementara ‘him’ (your big bro; he) sebagai OP. Untuk lebih lengkapnya silakan simak perubahan dari subjective ke objective pronoun berikut ini:

Sebagaimana anda saksikan sendiri bahwa ada beberapa OP yang enggan berubah wujud. Mereka tetap pada wujud aslinya ketika masih menjabat sebagai SP. Mereka adalah ‘you’ dan ‘it.’

Sebagaimana SP, OP juga punya ciri khusus dalam kedudukannya sebagai korban. Ia biasanya berada di tengah kalimat. Contohnya, kata ‘him’ pada kalimat diatas ada di tengah kalimat, tul gak? ‘Biasanya’ berarti tidaklah mutlak. Kadang ia juga berada di depan kalimat.


It (my laptop) was stolen yesterday

My laptop yang di ganti dengan OP ‘it’ mendapat perlakuan tidak menyenangkan oleh sang pencuri, yaitu dicuri tempo hari. Jadi dalam hal ini laptop anda bertindak sebagai OP.

Untuk lebih mematangkan pemahaman anda tentang OP, kerjakanlah tugas tugas berikut dan sebutkan yang mana bertindak sebagai OP!

  1. I adore him since the first sight.
  2. I bought her a luxury house in Pondok Indah.
  3. I trained my mother in law how to play Golf.
  4. I clean it twice a day.

The bill was settled by Cindy.

Sekian dulu pembahasan tentang ‘Objective Pronoun’ – selamat belajar buat rekan rekan semuanya.

Polisario Front is Accused of Military Recruitment of Children



GATRA DEWATA | ALGER | In flagrant violation of all international conventions against military recruitment of children, “Polisario Front” is shown red-handed during the visit of special envoy of the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Staffan de Mistura, accompanied by a UN delegation to Tindouf camps, located on Algerian territory. This is the second visit on his first tour in the region since his appointment in last November 2021.

In the same vein, January 04, 2021, The French NGO “International Alliance for Rights and Freedoms” (AIDL) strongly condemns the recruitment of children and their exploitation in conflicts and wars.

According to the same organization, the recruitment and exploitation of children by immersing them in areas of conflict and war, is an international crime that requires international prosecution against all criminals who are involved.

Everyone knows that the Sahrawi children are forced to move to Cuba, with the aim of indoctrinating them ideologically, subjecting them to military training and exploiting them while depriving them of all contact with their families. This forced immigration is considered a serious violation of the provisions of the Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air, supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, hence the civil and criminal liability of Polisario leaders and their accomplices.

The last visit made in Tindouf camps by Staffan de Mistura and his stuff lay bare the involvement of “Polisario Front” on military recruitment of children. (PERSISMA/Red)
