There is a lot of information to share about the language that most Malaysians use, as well as many other people from around the world. Well, I am going to share information on the number of people who speak Malay (and there are a lot), different countries that speak malay, how Malaysia connects to the Malay language, its’ written language (there is also ), languages related to Malay and Tembikar. The language of Malay is a rapidly growing language, and has many other languages related to it. Well, interestingly enough, Indonesian is considered another form of Malay. So, people who speak Indonesian and Malay must be able to communicate pretty easily. Becoming a rapidly growing language, more people are beginning to speak languages like or related to Malay.Of all of the people that walk this earth Earth, an average of about “one hundred and eighty-eight million speak Malay,” according to www.omniglot.com, which I think is a lot of people. This also includes all of the people who speak Indonesian, which is another form of the Language Malay, as I may have mentioned within my introduction paragraph. For such a small amount of countries that speak these languages, which will be referenced all throughout next paragraph, the amount of people that fluently speak them is absolutely insane. Although I must say that there are quite a bit of languages that are related to Malay, but I will talk about that in another paragraph.Anyways earlier I have stated that, there are only a few countries that speak native Malay or Indonesian. Well according to infoplease.com the countries that speak this language are “Malaysia, Brunei, India, Singapore, the Marshall Islands, and Vietnam,” but the first four countries are the most important because that is where the language is spoken the most. Malaysia is especially important as well as interesting because it was where the language of Malay was first originated. Also, I would think that people from the countries Malaysia, Brunei, India, and Singapore would be able to communicate very well, regardless of being in different parts of the world and speaking different versions of malay, because each version doesn’t differ much from the others. As mentioned earlier, the language of Malay seems to be a common language amongst Malaysia’s people. Well, Malay is also, in fact, the Official Language of Malaysia, as well as being Brunei’s official language but that is not important in this paragraph. Anyways, according to www.commisceo-global.com, Malay is spoken by ” all Malay people who reside in the Malay Peninsula,” which is only a few out of the one hundred and eighty-eight million people that speak Malay. The language of Malay was originally named “Bahasa Malaysia” but according to www.commisceo-global.com the name was replaced by “Bahasa Melayu,” by the Malaysia’s government. The Malay language is a rather interesting language, not only because of its relation to many other languages, but it is also rather intriguing because of its written language. The name of it is “Bahasa Melayu” according to www.commisceo-global.com, as mentioned earlier. Although there are other forms for it such as the “Latin and Arabic alphabets for Malay,” according to www.omniglot.com. This relates the language of Malay to many others, as well as the language that I speak, which is english, and Malay because they both derive from Latin. It also relates Malay to a lot of other languages that I do not know about because it also derives from the Arabic language. Malay is related to an abnormally large of languages due to the languages that it derives from. Well I am going to go into a few of those Languages that Malay is related to and according www.aboutworldlanguages.com some of the more important languages are ” Indonesian, Javanese, and Filipino. Indonesian in particular seems to be a very close language to Malay. I might of said this earlier, but I truly believe that if you were to put an Indonesian as well as a Malaysian in a room, together, they would be able to communicate rather well when given a something to talk about. So far I think that I have mentioned quite a bit about the language of Malay, where it is spoken, and related languages. Well I just feel the need write a bit more about the culture of Malaysia, because the language did, in fact, originate from Malaysia. In Malaysia there is a special craft that is made called the “tembikar tembeling,” according to www.sinarharian.com. This artifact was used as a storage container, but was normally for water and seems to still be very helpful to some of the people of Malaysia. Although, in today’s day and age, making a tembikar tembeling is more of an art that is used to preserve some of Malaysia’s customs and history rather than a water container. To sum up my paper, Malay is a very beautiful language that is spoken by many people as well as playing a major role within many cultures and customs around the world. Not only that, but this particular language is also very profound, it is linguistically interesting and it seems to flow right off of the tongue. In fact, Malay is related to English through Latin, so it could be easier to learn and speak rather than some other languages. The language of Malay shall never perish. Instead it as well as the culture that it originated from will continue grow on the people of this Earth.
