Abstract:

This book aims to describe aspects of the Indonesian language as spoken by
educated Jakartans in everyday interactions. This style of language is in
many ways significantly different from the formal language of government
and education, to the extent that it deserves separate consideration. While
formal Indonesian has been the subject of a considerable amount of
description very little attention has been paid to informal styles of the
language. The variety described here, Colloquial Jakartan Indonesian, is
the prestige variety of colloquial Indonesian and is becoming the standard
informal style. The description and texts in following chapters are drawn
from recordings of natural speech of educated people living in Jakarta.

While the book aims to inform those with a background in linguistics the
needs of teachers and learners with little or no knowledge of linguistics
is always borne in mind.  The work thus does not consider theoretical
linguistic issues nor use technical terms which would not be readily
understood by most readers.
