Malay overs: what you need to know

Malay is an Austronesian language with around 77 million native speakers in the Malay Peninsula and East Sumatra.

Surprisingly, around 200 million people around the world speak Malay as a second language. That’s a rare instance when the second language speaker number is greater than the native.

Malay is an official language in Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. There are Malay speaking communities all around the world, including Thailand, Philippines, and East Timor.

Did you know:

With combined native and foreign speakers, Malay is actually one of the most spoken languages in the world. Currently, it ranks 6th in the most spoken language list.

Language History

Malay originated from Proto-Malay – a language variety that was present around 1000 BCE alongside the Bruneian coast.

Linguists group Malay language history into three main periods: Old Malay, Classical Malay, and Modern Bahasa Malay. The earliest written text in Malay is from the Old Malay period and dates back to the 7th century.

Modern Malay that’s spoken today developed in the 19th century. Because of the Western influences on Southeast Asia of the time, the Malay language adopted many new features.

Close Relations

The Malay language is closely related to other Austronesian languages, such as Javanese, Sundanese, Madurese, and Cebuano.

Additionally, Malay is related to a whole linguistic group of Malayic languages, such as Rejang and Embaloh. Most Malayic languages are mutually intelligible to a varying degree.

Malay has many loanwords of Arabic origin, although they are mostly religious terms. Malay extensively borrowed from Sanskrit, Tamil, and Persian. Because of the European expansion, there are many Dutch and Portuguese words in the Malay lexis.

Did you know:

Malay uses two alphabets: Latin and a modified Arabic script. The Latin alphabet is mostly used in Indonesia and Malaysia, while the Arabic alphabet is preferred in Brunei.

Accents and Voice Over Tips

When it comes to Malay dialects, it’s quite difficult to say how many varieties are spoken. Because of its wide usage, Malay has a huge number of dialects, varieties, and creoles across Southeast Asia. Most of these region-specific dialects differ from the standard forms of Malay.

Surprisingly, Malay has two standard forms that serve as official languages in Indonesia and Malaysia: Indonesian and Malaysian. Both Indonesian and Malaysian are, in fact, dialects of Malay!

While the two dialects are mutually intelligible, there are noticeable differences in vocabulary, grammar in pronunciation. So when recording a Malay voice over, it’s important to know which dialect should be used. Of course, that will be dictated by the target audience.

Another thing to keep in mind is Malay is not a tonal language – the pitch won’t change the meaning of the words. Malay is not a difficult language to read even for foreigners. The words are pronounced in a way they’re written and the sound system doesn’t contain many unique sounds.
