A short history of the Malay language

Malaysian voiceover talent agencyMalay belongs to the Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian family of languages. It is most closely related to Javanese, Acehnese, Chamorro and Palauan.

The development of the Malay language is commonly divided into five periods:

  • Ancient Malay – before the 4th century – some linguists believe that Proto-Malay, the mother of all Malay dialects, was spoken by early Austronesian settlers in the region.
  • Old Malay – 4th to 14th century – during this time the language was greatly influenced by Sanskrit.
  • Classical Malay – 14th to 18th century – this period of development reflects the influence of Islam, together with the Persian and Arabic languages. Classical Malay became the lingua franca for the whole region around the Straits of Malacca, and was also used to communicate with European colonial powers.
  • Pre-Modern Malay – 19th century – during this time Malay was influenced by the Western colonial languages, particularly English, Dutch and Portuguese. Advances in printing, the setting up of newspapers, and the establishment of schools all helped to spread the Malay language.
  • Modern Malay – 20th century – Malay became more standardised; a joint spelling system was agreed between Malaysia and Indonesia.
