The New Spelling System for Bahasa Malaysia
Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka
This little booklet is the result of a piece of linguistic co-operation between Malaysia and Indonesia that not only - at last - produced a unified spelling system for both countries' national language, but also marked a significant step of reconciliation between two countries which had been at war with each other less than a decade previously. Until the 1972 spelling reforms the national language's Romanised script, Rumi, had been subject to more than one system, many of which were the products of well meaning and learned men, whose mother tongue was not Malay.
