Loan-Words in Indonesian and Malay

By Russel Jones (ed)

Jakarta: KITLV, 2008. Paperback. New. 3-3-16. This book is the culmination of a collaborative project of etymologists from many countries to compile a list loan-words from the Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Hindi, Japanese, Persian, Portuguese, Sanskrit and Tamil languages that are now used in the Malay Archipelago. The main focus is on Bahasa Indonesia, but many, if not most, of the words in the dictionary are relevant to Bahasa Malaysia as well. The project took more than 30 years to complete. Each word in the vocabulary is accompanied by its English translation, its source language and a transliteration of the original word in Roman characters. 360 pages with a bibliography. Weight 0.8kg.
