Rekan-rekan yg dihormati,

Minta tolong sedikit.

Ada kata yg belum saya alami dari bidang pelayaran, perikanan. Kata ini ada kemungkinan asal dari satu daerah. NTT sekitar Pulau Alor.

Artinya satu bagian dari kapal: "bisbis" atau mungkin "bis-bis"

Kalau dapat menjelaskannya saya sangat berterima kasih

Salam,
Maurice Sawyer

Explanation:
I assume that an outsider heard "besi-besi" as "bisbis" or "bis-bis" knowing that people in the eastern Indonesia spell "e" for instance in "beras" like "e" in "besok". Although "besi" is an adjective, some people consider it as a noun so that they might use it in its plural form. In any fishing vessel, "besi" must be used in the form of "steel" instead of "iron".

Badan dermaga terlihat sudah berlubang, khususnya pada bagian ujung dermaga yang berbahan dasar kayu. Selain itu, besi-besi yang merupakan salah satu bahan dasar bangunan, banyak yang sudah berkarat, warna catnya pun sudah mulai memudar.
