Facts about Malay

1. Austronesian Language Family: Malay belongs to the Austronesian language family, which is one of the world's largest language families. This family includes languages spoken across a vast region, from Madagascar to the Pacific Islands, and Malay is one of its most widely spoken members.

2. Linguistic Influence: Malay has had a significant influence on the English language, particularly through the absorption of Malay words into English. For example, words like "amok" (referring to a sudden, frenzied attack) and "bamboo" have Malay origins.

3. Standardised Versions: Malay has several standardised versions, with Indonesian Malay (Bahasa Indonesia) and Malaysian Malay (Bahasa Melayu) being the most prominent. While they share a common linguistic foundation, there are some differences in vocabulary and pronunciation between the two varieties.

4. International Language of Commerce: Malay serves as an important language of commerce and trade in Southeast Asia. It is commonly used in business transactions, negotiations and international trade agreements due to its wide regional acceptance.

5. Jawi Script: Historically, Malay was written using the Jawi script, an Arabic script adapted for the Malay language. Today, the Latin script is more commonly used, but the Jawi script is still taught and used for specific purposes, especially in religious and cultural contexts.
