PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.
This vocabulary has been prepared for use in connection with my
Practical Malay Grammar." It was originally intended to incorpor-
ate with the Grammar an English-Malay and a Malay-English Voca-
bulary, each containing some three or four thousand words, but in
view of the fact that most people require a vocabulary containing as
"large a number of words as possible and are subjected to much dis-
appointment and annoyance when they find that their vocabulary does
not contain just the very word which they require, it has been thought
"better to publish the vocabularies separately and to make them as
complete as is consistent with the.'low price at which such works are
expected to sell. " - .
The list of words which is here buffered-, to '-the public contains over
.six thousand words and phrases. .In such? ii list it is of course impos-
sible to include all the Malay wor^s which may1 be met with in even a
very limited range of Malay "reading, and-the student will no doubt
meet with some expressions in conversation with Malays which will
not be found in this vocabulary-:' <: Great care, however, has been
taken in the selection of the words, and it is hoped that very few
which are in common use or are likely to be needed by the student in
the first two or three years of his study of the language have been
omitted.
In this vocabulary, as in the Practical Malay Grammar," the
Malay words are printed in roman letters only. Comparatively few
Europeans, make any serious attempt to learn the Arabic character, and
those who do will no doubt require a dictionary rather than a voca-
bulary. The omission of the Arabic characters has enabled the
printers to put out this work in a very compact form and at a cost
considerably below what it would otherwise have been.
The great defect of Malay vocabularies printed in the Roman
character has always been the difficulty of finding many of the words
owing to variations of spelling. This has been particularly the case
in regard to the romanization of the short vowel sound, which even
rin the same work has been represented by different letters in different
words, according to the derivation of the word or the fancy of the
author, so that in many cases the student has had to hunt for a word
In two or three different places before he has been able to find it.
This difficulty has been obviated in this work by the adoption of the
.same system of romanization which has been used in my Grammar and
in all the other Malay publications of the Methodist Publishing House.


y Preface.
Its peculiar feature is the entire omission of the short vowel. This;
makes it just as easy to find a word containing the short vowel as it is
in a Malav dictionary printed in the Arabic character, for instead of
having to. look lip such a word as nschaya or psaVa under two or three
different vowels, the student will be able to find it at once from the
sound. It is believed that this will be found to be a very great ad-
vantage.
The introduction should be carefully studied by those who desire
to make an intelligent use of this vocabulary. Part of the introduc-
tion has been reproduced from the Grammar, but there will also be
found a large amount of entirely new matter explaining the use of
prefixes and suffixes, the accentuation of Malay words, and the use
and pronunciation of foreign words, etc. The student should not fail
to make the fullest use of the Grammar, not only on account of the
importance of thoroughly understanding the grammatical construction
of the language, but also because he will otherwise be unable to pro-
tit by the frequent references made in the vocabulary to the numbers:
of the paragraphs in the Grammar, where fuller information will be
found in regard to the use of certain words than could be given in a
vocabulary.
Derived words will only be found under their roots. Owing to
the immense number and variety of the derived forms in the Malay
language, this is the only arrangement which is at all satisfactory, and
has been adopted in all dictionaries and in one or two vocabularies.
At first the student will no doubt have some difficulty in finding out
what is the root of some of the derivatives, and it will be necessary
for him to make himself thoroughly acquainted with the use of pre-
fixes and affixes; this, however, will be found to be a blessing in dis-
guise. for it is impossible to read or speak the Malay language intelli-
gently without a thorough understanding of the derived forms.
An appendix containing lists of English words with their Malay
equivalents has been added. The vocabulary itself contains many
similar lists ; for instance a list of the different classes of workmen will
Ire found under lul-anj, a list of the classifiers or numeral coefficients;
under s-, cloths under I. a in, stones under batv, etc. The lists of nauti-
cal terms and diseases should be of special use to sailors and doctors
respectively, and housekeepers will find a very complete list of foods
and household terms.
In the preparation of this vocabulary I ant particularly indebted-
to Favre's Malay-French Dictionary and to Klinkert's Malay-Dutch
Pocket Dictionary. When in doubt as to the precise meaning of a
word I have occasionally referred to Wilkinson's Dictionary, Part I,
but as the second part has not yet been published this work has only
been referred to in regard to such words as come in the first half of
the Malay alphabet. Mv list of words has been compared with other
vocabularies in order to ensure that no important word has been
omitted. Several alterations and additions have been made at the

suggestion of Dr. Dueling, and my thanks are due to him for the
valuable assistance which he has rendered ine by reading and criticis-
ing the manuscript previous to publication.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
The demand for a new edition of this vocabulary has enabled
me to correct a few errors which crept into the first edition, and to add
a number of words which, though not in frequent use, are liable to be
met with by the student.
An attempt has also been made in this edition to indicate words
which are peculiar to the Malay spoken by the Babas," or Straits-
born Chinese, and some of their differences of pronunciation. The
difference between Baba Malay, and the language as it is spoken by the
Malays themselves, consists, however,, not merely in such variations as
can be shown in a vocabulary. There is a radical difference in the
structure of the sentences. For the most part the same words are used,
but the idiom is different, and would require a more thorough elucida-
tion than could be given in the introduction to a vocabulary. It is
hoped, however, that the Baba Malay words here given, marked (B.),
will help to explain some of the peculiarities of pronunciation met
with in the Settlements, where Chinese influence predominates.

INTRODUCTION.
The Vowels.
Tlie five vowels have the continental sounds:
a as in father. o as in hole.
e as the ey in they. u as in rude,
i as in ravine.
In open syllables these vowel sounds have always a greater degree
of intensity than in closed syllables.
In addition to the above there is in Malay, as in nearly all Orien-
tal languages, another simple vowel sound which is often called the
short vowel sound. In the different systems of romanizing, this short
vowel sound has been variously represented by a, a, e, e, i, i, u, u;
but all these different methods of representing this vowel sound are
open to the great objection that they mislead Europeans and even
natives into giving it an incorrect pronunciation, and in a dictionary
they have the additional disadvantage of giving rise to so much divers-
ity and uncertainty in the spelling of words containing the short
vowel that prolonged search is often necessary before it can be dis-
covered which of these vowels has been used by the lexicographer to
represent the short vowel in the particular word which is being sought
for. Experience has shown that the best way to spell words contain-
ing the short vowel with a view to helping the student to a correct
pronunciation, is to omit the vowel altogether, and it is believed that
the omission of the vowel will obviate the difficulty of finding such
words in the vocabulary. The exact sound of the short vowel should
be learnt if possible from a Malay; it is almost identical with the
half-vowel sound in the first syllable of such words as machine and
" balloon."
When two vowels come together, both must be sounded, but the
first must be run into the second; thus au has very nearly the sound
of ow in "cow," as pisau, mau; and oi lias almost the sound of the
English i in "ice," as, surgai, pakai.
Consonants.
The consonants in Malay are pronounced as in English, except
that the r should always be sounded much more clearly and with more
of a riig than in English. The consonant rg represents a single sound
in Malay, and should be pronounced like the ng in "singer," never as
in single;" the latter sound is represented in Malay by rgg; thus the
two sounds are found in the words: si-rga and sirg-gah. The letter k
in Malay when it occurs at the end of a word is not sounded like the


Introduction.
vii
English k, but the syllable in which it occurs must be pronounced
very short indeed, and the breath drawn in so as to produce the
shortening of the sound. The apostrophe at the end of a syllable
indicates a similar abrupt sound. Final h has also the effect of
shortening the last syllable, but not more than half as much as final k.
In the transliteration of the purely Arabic letters no distinction
lias been made between ^ and b; ^ and ^; ^ and ; or ^
and The other Arabic letters have been transliterated as fol-
lows: A. th, £ kh, j dli, ^ z, J. sh, dl, k tl, £gh, f.
The nasal letter 'ain ^ which changes its sound according to the
vowel written with it, is represented by a rough breathing (') placed
before the vowel. The purely Arabic letters given above are very
generally mispronounced by Malays, dh being pronounced as z, th as
s, and sometimes f as p, and z as j. Such words are given in the
vocabulary under both letters in order to make it easy for the student
to find them; thus idhin will also be found under izin, and thai at ha
under salasa.
Orthographic Signs.
As already stated, the inverted comma represents the Arabic nasal
letter 'ain. It is placed before the vowel which has the nasal sound,
as in the words 'alam, 'ilmu, m'alim, do'a.
The apostrophe represents the Arabic sign hamzah, both at the
end of a word as described above and also in the middle of a word
between two vowels, where it indicates that the vowels must be pro-
nounced separately; this is also the case where the short vowel sound
is followed by another vowel, as in the words s'isi, k'atas, t'akan, the
hamzah being used in such cases in the Malay character. The apos-
trophe is further used to indicate an initial short vowel before the
consonants m and n, as in the words 'mas, 'ntah, 'iygan, etc.
The hyphen is used in this Vocabulary to show the division of
the words into syllables, except where the division is marked by an
apostrophe or an inverted comma or by the mark which shows where
the accent falls, as described below. In ordinary writing the hyphen
should only be used where a word is reduplicated, or to separate
from the words to which they are attached those prefixes, suffixes
and other particles which do not form an integral part of the
word itself; these are: the preposition k~, the abbreviated numeral
s-, the passive prefix di-, the pronominal suffixes, -ku, -mu, and
-tya, and the particles -Iah, -kah, -nah, -tah. The preposition di is
distinguished from the passive prefix di- by the absence of the hyphen.


Introduction. vii
Refereiiccs to the Grammar.
Words which are followed bv numerals in parentheses are re-
ferred to in the "Practical Malay Grammar" in the paragraphs of
which the numbers are given, where in every ease some further
explanation of such word will be found. Bv this means the Voca-
bulary becomes to some extent an index to the Grammar, and in
regard to the use of certain words the student is enabled to obtain a
large amount of information which could not possibly be looked for
in a Vocabulary.
Root Words and their Derivatives
In the Malay language a very large number of words are derived
from root words by the addition of prefixes or suffixes. Sometimes
several prefixes and suffixes are attached to the same word, and there
is so much variety in their use that it would be extremely cumbersome
to insert all such derived words in alphabetical order as separate words.
The plan which is followed in this vocabulary is that which has been
adopted in all Malay dictionaries, namely to put all derived words
under the head of the roots from which they are derived.
Some prefixes and suffixes are only used to form nouns, and
others are used with verbs. The former are:
Prefix p, which denotes the agent.
Prefix p and suffix an, forming abstract nouns from verbs.
Prefix per and suffix1 an, forming verbal nouns from verbs.
Prefix h and suffix an, forming nouns from adjectives and
nouns
Suffix an forming nouns from verbs, and usually expressing
the thing which is affected by the action.
The verbal forms aie:
Prefix ber, which forms piesent participles with intransitive
verbs.
Prefix ter, which forms past participles.
Prefix di-, which forms the passive voice.
Prefix m, used with transitive verbs.
Suffixes kan and i, which form transitive verbs.
In this vocabulary the derivatives will be found in the follow-
ing order: (1) compound words and phrases formed with the simple
root in combination with other words; (2) the verbal derivatives;
(3) derived nouns. Only those derivatives are given which are in
ordinary use; the fact that anv particular derived form is not found
in the vocabulary must not be taken as an indication that it cannot
be used.
In the case of words which are essentially verbs or can be used as
verbs in the root form, the derivative formed with the prefix ber or in,
as the case may be, is given immediately after the root. Where the
prefix ber is thus given it may be taken to indicate that the verb is in-


Introduction. vii
transitive; and where the prefix is m that the verb is transitive ; in the
latter ease one of the suffixes kan or i is sometimes given to show
which of these forms is most commonly used; in some cases either
may be used. Some roots may be used either transitively or intran-
sitively, in which case the derivatives with ber and m are both given.
It must be understood that the prefix m can always be used with deri-
vative verbs formed with the suffix kan or i; this being the case it has
not been thought necessary to give the derivative formed with m as a
distinct form of the word.
In derived words formed with the prefixes ber, ter, per, di- and k,
the first syllable of the root undergoes no change, and the word can
therefore usually be discovered without any difficulty, but with the
prefixes in and p the root in many cases changes its form. A refer-
ence to the following list of changes will usually enable the student
to decide what the root is:
If the root commences with
I, m, n, or r, it undergoes no change;
b, the prefix becomes mm or pin, as buka, mmbuka;
p, the prefix becomes mm or pin, and the initial p of the root is
elided, as put us, mmutus;
d or j, the prefix becomes mn or pn, as dapat, mndapat;
t or ch, the prefix becomes mn or pn and the initial t or ch of
the root is elided, as taroh, mnaroh;
y or Ji or a vowel, the prefix becomes mnj or pry, as gali,
m rgyali;
k, the prefix become miy or pig and the initial k of the root is
elided, as karaig, migaraig;
s and sometimes ch, the prefix becomes miy or pry and the
initial $ or ch of the root is elided, as suroh, mryuroh.
The chief difficulty in discovering the root arises when the root
commences with p, t, or k, from the fact that when the initial letter
has been elided there is no means of knowing what that letter may
have been; thus the root of inmutus might be either mutus or putus,
and that of mnaroh and mrgararg might be either naroh or taroh, or
karaiy or araig respectively. When in doubt the student must look for
both forms. Thus with derivatives commencing with mry, the root
should first be sought for under the more common letter s and then
under ch, those commencing with mn should be looked for first under
t and then under n, those commencing mm under p or m, and those
commencing miy under k or under the vowel which follows the miy.
Similarly of course with derivatives formed with p in its various
forms.
Words of Foreign Origin.
The Malays have a remarkable aptitude for adopting foreign
words, which in most cases become assimilated to the Malay style of
pronunciation, the spelling being sometimes changed to suit the new


X
Introduction.
pronunciation. It is important that the student should "know the
source from which such foreign words have come, in order that he may
be able to discriminate between synonymous words and decide which
should be used in conversation with the various nationalities by
whom Malay is spoken. Thus one would not hesitate to use words
of Chinese origin in speaking with the Baba Chinese, or to use Javanese
words in conversation with persons who come from the Dutcli Indies,
whereas one should avoid words of Arabic or Persian origin except
when speaking with educated Malays. It should be remembered,
however, that some foreign words have become so thoroughly incor-
porated in the language as to be well understood by all, as for instance
such words as waktu, 'umor, smoa, bumi, fikir, fakat, etc. A large
number of English, Portuguese and Dutch words, however, though
well understood in the Settlements, are practically unknown to natives
living in the interior, so that it is necessary to exercise some discre-
tion in the use of such words.
Spelling of Foreign Words.
Malay lexicographers have usually romanized words of foreign
origin in harmony with the spelling of the language from which such
words are derived rather than with the way in which they are pro-
nounced by Malays. This plan of having a different system for roman-
izing foreign words causes great confusion in a vocabulary and has
been avoided as far as possible in this work. Such words will be
found spelt phonetically according to the Malay pronunciation. Thus
Sanskrit and Arabic words which are pronounced by Malays with the
short vowel sound are so spelt in this vocabulary, whereas most lexi-
cographers who use e for the short vowel have spelt such words with
o, i, or v, as tantra, vischaya, and pusaka, which arc here spelt intra,
nschaya and psaka. The former arrangement, though perhaps scienti-
fically correct, presents such unnecessar}r difficulties to the unsophistic-
ated mind that a consistent system of phonetic spelling appears pre-
ferable. Again it may be more accurate to write kali-mat shahadat,
but as the Malays always say kliviah shahadat, it would be misleading
to spell otherwise.
Accent In Root Words.
In order that one may pronounce correctly, it is just as important
to know on which syllable the stress should be laid as it is to have
every word spelt phonetically. A novel feature of this vocabulary
is that the stress on each word is shown by means of an accent, in the
same way as is done in Webster's Dictionary. It will be noticed
that in root words the accent usually falls on the penultimate. When
the vowel of the penultimate is short, however, the accent very fre-
quently falls on the last syllable. In some two-syllable words there
is an almost equal stress on the two syllables, and in such cases the


Introduction. vii
accent depends a great deal upon the position of the word in the sen-
tence. For instance when the words tia-rg, twrun or tahan come at the
end of a sentence the accent falls on the last syllable, but when placed
elsewhere in the sentence there is some uncertainty as to the accent,
though it generally seems to be on the penultimate. Words of Arabic
origin are often accentuated by the Malays in a manner different from
the Arabs. In this vocabulary no attempt has been made to indicate
the original Arabic pronunciation; the aim has been to accentuate
every word in the way in which it is ordinarily pronounced by Malays
in the colloquial language.
Accent in Derivatives.
Many authorities on the Malay language have maintained that in
derivatives the accent moves forward on the addition of a suffix from
the penultimate of the root to the penultimate of the derived word.
The Dutch scholar van der Wall was the first to controvert this
theory, which is also opposed by the grammarian Gerth van Wijk, and
is undoubtedly incorrect. As a rule the accent in derivatives remains
on the same syllable on which it stood in the root, the principal excep-
tions being words ending in arg, in which the accent falls on the penulr
timate of the derivative on the addition of the suffix an. Those who
wish to see the arguments on both sides of this question will find it
fully discussed in a paper on The Evolution of Malay Spelling," in
No. 36 of the Journal of the Straits Branch of the Royal Asiatic
Society, published as a separated paper by the Methodist Publishing
House.
In regard to the division of the syllables it will be found that on
the addition of a suffix commencing with a vowel the final consonant
of the root is carried forward to commence the new syllable. The
Malays invariably divide the syllables in this way, each syllable being
begun with a consonant wherever it is possible. The same thing is
done when a prefix ending in a consonant comes before a foot com-
mencing with a vowel, as m-tya-lcu from miy and aht.
Synonyms.
Another special feature of this vocabulary is that synonyms or
words of cognate meaning and sometimes those of exactly opposite
meaning, are referred to in the case of a very large proportion of the
words. This is intended to open up a very wide field of study to those
who wish to make a careful comparison of the precise meanings of
Malay words, and who desire to be able to discriminate between words
of nearly similar meaning. The advanced student is strongly re-
commended to make such words a special study.

    PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION. In this Volume, I have adopted a plan untried, I believe, since the dayg of HADLEY and BowREY, the latter of whom published his Grammar and Dictionary of the Malay Language in the year 1 701. To assist those who are unacquainted with the Arabic character, have arranged the Malay-English portion of the Vocabulary so that, I trust, it may be as easy to find here a Malay word and its English meaning, as in Volume I. to find the English word with the Malay rendering. The student can still find the Malay word in the ,Arabic character at least as readily as though he bad not the Romanized Malay to guide him. With but few exceptions, such as Intan crwl, 6rang tJ-'1, and those words which, in the Roman character, appear under the letter U, the initial letter of the Romanized form is the equivalent of the initial letter in the Arabic character. This Volume contains many more Malay words than Volume I., and though a large number of these will not be found in

    PAGE 6

    VI any Malay Dictionary I have had an opportunity of consulting, I have introduced them into this Vocabulary because they are commonly used by the Malays amongst themselves, though but few may be known to Europeans. There are still nu m hers of purely Malay words, either local to particular places, or but seldom used even by well educated Malays, which I have not included in this Volume, but which, I think, should be found in a comprehensive Dictionary, though I know of none which contains them. Some simple rules for the formation of parts of speech, &c., which will be found as notes in their proper places in the body of the book, I have collated and placed, for easy reference, with the instructions on pronunciation. Tables of Weights and Measures will be found at the end of the Volume. London, May 1887. F. A. S.

    INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PRONUNCIATION OF MALAY WORDS WRITTEN IN THE ROMAN CHARACTER. "With regard to the mode of orthography adopted in expres sing the words of the language in our characters, two consi derations present themselves: the one, that of conveying, as nearly as possible, their true sound; and the other, of paying the requisite attention to the powers of the several letters made use of in the original ....... It has been my design to avoid a pertinacious adherence to either mode. I have followed as closely the literal orthography of the original as could be done consistently with a fair expression of the sound, and where these could not he reconciled, I have given a preference to the latter consideration, because it appeared of more importance that the word should he rightly pronounced by those who can not read the Malayan character, than that the more learned scholar should be gratified by a literal accuracy to him not absolutely necessary. Frequently indeed I have been induced to repeat the spelling with some .variation in order to convey a juster idea of the pronunciation." -MABBDEN. The above passage exactly expresses my own views in the matter of orthography. I have been anxious to give these words

    PAGE 8

    VIII the prominence due to such an expression of opinion from so famous an authority. VowELs. The Vowels a, e, i, o, n are pronounced as in Italian. The circumflex accent 11 or the short mark v when placed over any of these vowels, will lengthen or shorten it. Tliese tonal marks do not always represent a long or slwrt vowel in the Malay spelling, but are given to show tl1e quantities of tl1e various syllables of a word in pronunciation. Pronounce a as the a in soprano, or the vowel sound in farm; example, Jllirang, Mlibok. Pronounce a as the vowel sound in the English word aome; example, Sampei, Rangka. Pronounce a as the vowel sound in the English word cup; example, Kri!.p, Pi!.nat. Never give the sound of a in the En,qlisl1 word man, to any Malay word. 'Pronounce e like the sound of ay in the English word may; example, Elok, Hemat. Pronounce e like the sound of e in the English word ten; example, Hengga, Plikien, Pengsan. Pronounce as short as possible, like the sound of re in the English word retire; example, Ti!pi. The sound is so short that many persons have advocated its expression by a single apostrophe, thus, M'nang, but I prefer the Pronounce i long, as the ee in sleek; example, Lihat, Pileh. Pronounce i as in the preceding without laying quite so much stress upon it, as Bioi, Biji. At the end of a word, when. followed by a consonant; the sound of the i .is shorter,

    PAGE 9

    IX like the sound of i in the English word tin; example, Lilin, Langit, Mllsjid. Pronounce l' very short, as in the case of the only with the sound of i in gill; example, Jllid, Lllah, Flrdaus. The use of this tone is rare. Pronounce iJ as the vowel sound in the English go; example, Dosa, 6rang. Pronounce o as the o in English; example, Choreng. The pronunciation of o really depends on what follows it. Thus, o followed by n is pronounced like the English on, and o alone has the sound of o in so, thus Chonto'. Again, o followed by r is pronounced like the English or, thus Undor; whilst o before ng is pronounced more like the o in the Dutch Jongklteer than in the English long, as Longgar, Gllnong. o is very seldom met with, it should be pronounced with the vowel sound of the English knob; example, Bohong, Dosta. Pronounce ii like the vowel sound in the English two; example, Gftoong, Lftka. Pronounce u rather shorter than the above, but with the same sound; as Ta.kut, Muotah. u has the vowel sound of the English word took; example, Mulia, Dunia. The sound is rare in Malay, but met with in Arabic words. Never pronounce n wlten met witl in a Malay word like tlte u in but. DIPHTHONGS. Pronounce ae, ai, or ei, when met with, with the sound given by repeating these vowels one after the other, as above instructed; example, Smai, Sungei. au has tbe sound of ow in the English now; example, Pulau.

    PAGE 10

    X As regards Consonants, it is only necessary to say that ng is always pronounced like ng in the English long and never like ng in the English mangle. This last sound is given in Malay by adding another g, thus, Tanggong. The sound given by Malays to what I have expressed by the letters ang is difficult to find in any English word. The sound of the first syllable of "hungry" is however near it. Never pronounce ang like the same letters in the English hang. g is always hard, as in go. The soft sound of g in the English gentle is invariably expressed by j in Malay, thus, Jinak. eh is always pronounced like the clt in churclt, and sh like the same letters in shine, unless where specially instructed to the contrary. Always pronounce th like tit in the and not as in thin, except when the letter Tha occurs. kit should be pronounced like clt in Loclt, hut harder, as Khab!i.r. Whenever a word, or the final syllable of a word of more than one syllable, ends with either lt or k, that word or tlnal sylJable most be pronounced very short indeed, whatever the vowel which precedes the !t or k. When the word ends with /t that letter shoolld be slightly sounded, out when it ends with k, the k is always silent. Lastly, do not be afraid to pronounce the r in Malay words; it is a peculiarity of the people that they lay much stress on the r in pronunciation. It is difficult for an Englishman to pick up the practice, but it should be attempted. In the common people, and indeed the Chiefs, un less talking to strangers, speak with a curious lisp, which avoids the pronunciation of s, r, or l, but whatever may be the local

    PAGE 11

    XI peculiarities of any particular Native State, and they are but few and of slight importance, there is but one language recog nised in the Peninsula, and that is Malay, not High Malay (whatever that may mean), or Court Malay, but simply the Malay language proper, and a knowledge of that, if the words be accurately pronounced and used in their true sense, even though the knowledge be but slight, will be as useful in KMah as in PAhang or Tr6ugganu, in Perak or Sri Menanti, as in KE!lantan or Petani. TRANSLITERATION. I have bound myself by no rule in this matter, indeed to transliterate in Roman letters vowels which do not appear at all in the Malay words would be difficult. I have reproduced the Malay consonants by their equivalents in Roman letters in every case. To lay down such a rule with regard to. even the vowels which do appear in the Malay, would be unwise, for it would only mislead. To say that ..;; should always be reproduced by i, when in Malay it is pronounced as e or as ei, or to make it a rule that _, shall always be rendered by u, when it is often really pronouncod o and au, would be to advocate mispronunciation and misunderstanding, with no countervailing benefit. t:M e. i., mnng, cannot be transliterated to represent any intelligible sound, but it is perfectly easy to produce the Malay word, thus Menang, having already laid down how and a shall be pronounced. I have rendered the Malay letter .,.. by nya to distinguish it

    PAGE 12

    XII from or nia. Let me repeat again, the Romanized Malay words in this Vocabulary are not, and are not intended to be, transliterations of Malay words, but, guided by the instructions already laid down, they are intended to represent the Malay words as pronounced in the Malay language, w bile the A rabic characters show the correct spelling in the Malay vernacular. Hamzah (). In Arabic words, where two Alifs would come together, the second is omitted, and Hamzah inserted in its place. In Malay words, the Hamzah is usually found at the end of a word, and gives the vowel which precedes it a short sound very much as though the Hamzah were the final k.

    VOL I. VOCABULARY OF THE ENGLISH AND MALAY LANGUAGES, WITH NOTES BY F. A. SWETTENHAM. Opinions of the Press. These objects appear to us to have been successfully attained. The work is a most scholarly production, which does Mr. SwET TENHAM the highest credit, and must have cost him much time and labour, and it cannot fail to prove a most useful vade-mecttm to the studr.nt and the business man who wishes to obtain an accurate knowledge of the Malay language, its idiom, pronunciation, and written character. When Part. II. is published, the complete work will enable any one to learn how to speak and write Malay accurately without help or reference to any other work, such as MARSDEN's Dictionary, now out of print and difficult to get, or ORA WFURD's Grammar and Dictionary, now also more or less out of date, and which does not give the Malay character. -Singapote Daily T i mes, 18th April, 1881.

There was certainly room for Mr. SwETTENHAM's English and Malay Vocabulary and Dialogues, in which his objects have been, amongst other things to compile a vocabulary which shall contain every word likely to be met with in ordinary reading, writing, or and "to express in the Romanized Mal ay, as

This is, perhaps, about as difficust a task as a person can set himself with any language, and, for reasons which will be obvious to all who read Mr. SwETTENHAM's preface, it must be specially difficult in the case of Malay. Mr. SwETTENHAM has certainly spared no pains to attain his object. It would bo interesting to discover how near a careful student of his work could get to the accurate pronunciation of Malay. -Saturday Review, 9th July 1881.
