A short history of the Javanese language

Javanese voiceover talent agency

Javanese belongs to the Sundic sub-group of the Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian family of languages. It is not particularly close to other languages in this family, but those it bears most resemblance to include Malay, Sundanese, Balinese and Madurese.

It is the most widely spoken of all the regional languages in Indonesia, used mainly in Central and East Java. Its history is usually split into four phases of development:

  • Old Javanese – from the 9th century – the earliest examples of the written language date back to this time.
  • Middle Javanese – from the 13th century – the Javanese culture and language expanded eastwards during this time, towards Madura and Bali.
  • New Javanese – from the 16th century – Javanese culture and language spread westwards towards previously Sundanese areas. The rise of Islam – as well as contact with the Dutch – led to the introduction of many foreign loanwords during this period.
  • Modern Javanese – from the 20th century – essentially the same as New Javanese.
