This unit will explore how the Indonesian language came into being. Knowledge of its history and development will give students the ability to extract more meaning from contemporary language use and also improve access to older documents. Changes and standardisation of Indonesian spelling, syntax and structure as part of the Malay language and culture will also be studied to allow students to understand the way in which the national languages of Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore are related and interact both historically and in the present time.
Class participation and preparation 20%, four in-class assignments 60%, special project 20%.
