Proper noun edit
- a former de facto province of Indonesia, whose territory corresponded to the previous Portuguese Timor and to the presently independent country of East Timor
Usage notes edit
Indonesian clearly distinguishes the names for the sovereign state of East Timor or Timor-Leste and the former Indonesian province of East Timor, the latter is known as Timor Timur. Unlike English, these terms are not interchangeable in Indonesian.
