Read and listen a lot. Try to notice the way the verbs change when you read and listen. With enough reading and listening you will get better and better at identifying the endings. This is contrary to the Relevance Theory Sperber and Wilson, and who tried to maintain the original meaning of the target language within the same context.
The following discussion refers to findings for 'he is hungry' use as shown in Table 6. The same mistake is repeated by respondents for this third person pronoun. This clearly shows that respondents are still confused to find a suitable match and accurate translation because each is still bound by the context of the text. As emphasized in Relevance Theory Sperber and Wilson, and , the style of the speaker in interpreting the original text is imperative to ensure that the true meaning remain the same in the target language even though the context has changed.
Although the respondents repeated the same mistake, 21 respondents managed to get the correct form successfully. Subsequent analysis refers to the translation of the phrase kami lapar we are hungry tenemos hambres.
On the other hand, 17 respondents still commit the mistake of not compounding the 'hungry' hambre adjective to 'hungr-ies hambres. This is evidence where the influence of the original language affects the cognitive style of the respondents because in Malay adjectives are never compounded.
However in Spanish, adjective compounding is done if it involves third person pronouns. This an issue that respondents need to understand because according to the Relevance Theory Sperber and Wilson, and the role of the speaker, listener and text are related in determining the optimal relevance of the message to be delivered.
Most of the respondents failed to produce the correct verb form because only 5 respondents got it correct. Meanwhile 12 respondents made mistakes of not compounding the adjectives hambre into hambres.
This proves how the original language which is Malay influences Spanish grammar. Additionally, three respondents made mistakes in the selection of pronoun referring to 'all of you' to tienen them. However, Spanish pronoun reference is specific as shown in Table 1 that is singular and compounded pronouns.
Because of these differences, the probability of the respondent to make a mistake is high. This argument is further evidenced by the data in Table 8 showing 24 respondents who made mistakes that causes a matching translation that is not relevant to the messages intended to be delivered. There are also respondents who made mistakes in spelling the word hambre hunger becomes hambrais which does not have any meaning. The finding is similar to Table 7: Kami lapar We are hungry Tenemos hambres where only 6 respondents managed to produce the correct translation.
This is due to verb conjugation referred to more than one person. But in terms of the meanings, it would still carry the original message that can be understood. As usual the repeated mistake in changing the adjective hambre hunger to hambriento hunger is committed.
Although only 6 respondents, it does not mean that all the respondents failed to understand the verb form and meaning when translating from Malay to Spanish. Summary As a result of these discussions, the authors can conclude a few points in matching translation with reference to Relevance Theory Sperber and Wilson, and Through discussions of the findings, the authors found that there are a number of respondents who successfully translates the data in order to maintain the original meaning.
Speaking style is very important because in the Relevance Theory Sperber and Wilson, and , the cognitive ability of the listener to interpret the source text is emphasized so that the meaning remains the same in the target language. The example of saya lapar 'I am hungry' tengo hambre translation where a total of 22 people out of 30 respondents managed to translate properly indicates that the cognitive ability respondents is satisfactory because the original meaning when translated is intact.
The combination of these two areas with the theory being referred to makes the discussion of the findings interesting. This is because every translation done must retain the original meaning of the target language. There are several successful respondents who managed to retain the original meaning in the target language even though the grammars of the two languages are very different. For example, for the phrase dia lapar 'he is hungry' tiene hambre , a total of 21 respondents were able to maintain the original meaning.
It is clear that the semantic-pragmatic relationship is highly effective in maintaining optimal relevance in meaning. In the Malay language the exact matching meaning for tengo hambre is saya berasa lapar I feel hungry. Conclusion Following these discussions it can be concluded that the Tener verb use can be further expanded based on the context of the target language learning. However, the difference of form and function of the Tener verb in the two languages to some extent affect the overall learning process in the classroom.
Thus, in the view of the authors, respondents who managed to find the correct matching translations can be considered as having mastered the learning of Spanish as a foreign language.
While respondents who made mistakes in translating prove that their cognitive abilities are still influenced by the source language which is Malay. Bibliography Alicio, A.

Pronouns are agglutinative , with the following phonetic modifications: If le or les precedes lo , la , los , or las , it becomes se. If a form ending in -mos is followed by nos , the s drops, resulting in -monos. The s also drops before se, and thus -mose- e. Accent[ edit ] The word stress remains the same when pronouns are suffixed. The written accent is thus added, kept, or removed as needed to mark it when it falls on a non-default syllable, according to the general rules.
Verbs ending in -er or -ir follow the same conjugation patterns and -er verbs are far more common.
