Legenda Bahasa Inggris - Belajar bahasa Inggris pada kesempatan kali ini akan menampilkan beberapa cerita legenda bahasa Inggris yang berasal dari Indonesia tentunya. Negara kita kaya, kaya akan sumber daya alam, kaya akan sumber daya manusia dan adat, tradisi serta kebudayaan yang diciptakan, termasuk juga legenda-legenda yang ada. Hampir semua daerah di Indonesia mempunyi cerita yang melegenda sendiri. Dan kadang dari legenda tersebut suatu daerah berasal. Tapi apakah sebenarnya yang dinamakan legenda.
Dimulai dengan pengertian legenda secara bahasa, legenda berasal dari bahasa latin yang berarti sesuatu yang di baca. Sedangkan menurut istilah legenda merupakan cerita yang berkembang dimasyarkat yang dianggap oleh masyarakat tersebut yang di artikan dalam Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia (KBBI) sebagai cerita rakyat pada zaman dahulu yang ada hubungannya dengan sejarah.
Sedangkan pengertian dari kamus besar Oxford menjelaskan arti dari legenda sebagai "a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but not authenticated" yang berarti legenda merupakan sebuah cerita tradisional yang kadang populer dianggap sebagai sejarah yang kadang sukar dibuktikan.
Banyak sejarawan menguak sebuah sejarah sesuatu berdasarkan legenda yang ada. Karena pada dasarnya legenda merupakan sejarah itu sendiri yang tidak mengalami pencatatan, sehingga dengan cara penyebarannya lewat mulut ke mulut memungkinkan terjadinya pergeseran-pergeseran dan penambahan-penambahan pada sejarah asli sebelum menjadi sebuah legenda.
Nah pada kesempatan kali ini, penulis berniat untuk memberikan beberapa legenda yang berkembang di masyarkat Indonesia dan dari berbagai daerah di Indonesia dalam bahasa Inggris tentunya disertai dengan terjemahannya. Semoga bermanfaat. Check this out!!!
