Subject (noun) + sama dengan + Object (noun)
Example : Tas saya sama dengan tas dia (My bag is the same as his bag)
- se + adjective/ sama + adjective + dengan : se in this case has the same meaning with In this part, you have to put adjective after se or between sama and dengan.
- Subject (noun) + se-adjective + Object (noun)
- Subject (noun) + sama + adjective + dengan + Object (noun)
Example : – Mobil ini semurah mobil teman saya (This car as cheap as my
– Mobil ini sama murah dengan mobil teman saya (the meaning
is same as the sentence above)

- Paling/ter- : this is used to express the sentence that has meaning as the most. So paling or prefix ter- means For the pattern, it is a bit similar with English pattern.
- Subject (noun) + paling + adjective
- Subject (noun) + ter-adjective

–Tas ini termahal (same meaning)
However, not all paling and ter- can be interchanged. There are several words that only could use paling or only ter- such as:
