How do you distinguish between these three words? Minuman anggur is literally grape-drink, so how do you say grape juice?

Jus anggur?

    Jus anggur?

    Grape (anggur) is a fruit, wine (minuman anggur) is an alcoholic drink, and grape juice (jus anggur) is a soft drink. Sometimes, indonesians say "Saya minum anggur" without word of "minuman". "Anggur" here means "wine". If "anggur" means "grape", we would use "to eat". "Saya makan anggur".

    Thanks a lot for learning my mother tongue.:oops:

    No problem, very interesting language. Just difficult to find learning materials. Hopefully the course on Duolingo will be good and made quickly.

    Thanks for the answer!:)

    In malay:
    yes we would say jus anggur for grape juice.

    Difference between these words:
    Grape= anggur (which still in fruit state)
    Wine= arak (an alcoholic drink)
    Grape drink= minuman anggur, which usually we say it as "air anggur"
    Grape juice= jus anggur( which is not alcoholic)
    Hope this will help you:)
