DATA SET NAME: Rantau Panjang PROJECT NAME: Rantau Panjang PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This database is part a project focusing on Traditional Malay varieties spoken in the interior of Sumatra. The Malay language originated in Sumatra, and dozens of Malay dialects are spoken on the island, few of which have been described. The purpose of this project is to study a few rapidly disappearing Malayic languages which display a mixture of grammatical characteristics typical of their language family (Malayic), and grammatical characteristics (including e.g. morphological apophony) that are otherwise unknown in frequently studied Malayic languages like Malay/Indonesian. These languages are all spoken in...
DATA SET NAME: Sarang Lang DATA SET DESCRIPTION: Sarang Lang is a Malay dialect related to Palembang Malay, spoken in one large village about 80 km southeast of the city of Palembang.

A study of the village's oral history, as well as written sources, verify this. The village was apparently established as the fiefdom of a noble Javanese family from Palembang, and over time the Malay villagers adopted many lexical items from their Javanese overlords. The use of...
