Word Order (Susunan kalimat)

The basic word order of Indonesian is very similar to English.

There is one basic difference with Indonesian sentence structure.

In Indonesian, the noun or subject comes before the predicate or adjective. 

For example :

Buku saya

Kucing hitam

Adik laki-laki paman saya

my book

black cat

my uncle's younger brother
