Malay: Handbook of Spoken 'Bazaar' Malay -

by

JN McHugh

 

This handbook first issued in  1945, ran into several editions as it was one of the most handy and used introductions for non-native Malay speakers to the Malay language. It adopts a no nonsense approach with McHugh's phonetic version of the language. There is no attempt to introduce the student to the official romanised version of the language. The book was originally aimed at enabling the large influx of overseas troops involved in reoccupying the country after the Japanese surrender to make themselves understood quickly. This edition replaces most of the military language with more general day to day vocabulary. 148 pages.
