The Indonesian language

Indonesian is an Austronesian language, the official language of Indonesia (although it is the first language only to some 15-30 million people; but it is a second language to over 100 million more people). As such, it falls within the top ten of the most widely spoken languages in the world (next to Mandarin, English, Hindi, Spanish and Arabic). Indonesian is closely related to Malay.

Standard Indonesian, which was made the official language of Indonesia in 1945, is based on the dialect of the southern Malay Peninsula (Bahasa Riau). This has happened through a long historical process, through which it got adopted as the lingua franca of the islands: Malay was the language of the courts of a medieval state called Malacca. Due to the power of that state, Malay spread throughout the region of the empire, and various travellers bore Malay throughout the islands of Indonesia, helping make it the lingua franca. Later, Indonesian got further adopted for religious purposes, and it played an important role in the new state of Indonesia formed in the 20th century. When the Netherlands had started gaining influence in Indonesia through colonialism, Indonesian had already widespread adoption, thus the Netherlands just adopted the language for communication within the state itself. In politics, public administration and courts, Bahasa Indonesia is the only official language. It is the language of legislation, campaigning, local government, court proceedings and the military.

Indonesian has borrowed a great deal from other languages, and even European ones, such as Dutch, Portuguese (such borrowing occurred during the process of colonisation), but also Arabic, Chinese, etc. Indonesian currently has a standardised and regulated grammar (unlike English but like French.

Indonesian has a reputation for being simple to learn. It lacks complicated conjugation (yay for us! but we still provide you with possible forms, examples and translations) or declension, it is written in the Latin script, and it is generally quite straightforward insofar as languages go (again, the high level of simplicity of the language has been attributed by some linguists to be arising out of its 'second language' status).

Since Indonesian shares its history with Malay, it is worth reading up on Malay to learn about the early development of Indonesian (and vice versa).
