In addition to the standardized versions of Bahasa Melayu
and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are particularly welcome dealing
with non-canonical varieties such as Betawi Malay,
Jakarta Indonesian, Peranakan Malay, Bazaar Malay,
and regional dialects of Malay and Indonesian.
Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and may
represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical
persuasions.  Presentations at the symposium will be delivered
in English.
