Vocabulary Building in Indonesian
An Advanced Reader

By Soenjono Dardjowidjojo

“This is another outstanding educational publication by the author of Sentence Patterns of Indonesia (1978). Soenjono’s new book is aimed at bridging the gap between the basic knowledge of formal Indonesian provided by the many elementary textbooks, and the reality of socially determined levels of speech, as well as the language found in modern Indonesian newspapers and magazines.”

Roger Tol, Academic and University Publishers Group

An outstanding advanced text intended to complement and supplement Indonesian language materials now available. The author takes the student through a series of original essays and previously published material on a variety of subjects, not merely explaining grammatical and vocabulary matters, but offering detailed discussions of nuances, alternative meanings, synonyms and antonyms. This unique vocabulary exploration device forms about one–third of the book, and makes the lessons powerful aids to efficient and in–depth language learning.

Cover of 'Language and Social Change in Java'

Language and Social Change in Java
Linguistic Reflexes of Modernization in a Traditional Royal Polity
By J. Joseph Errington

Errington explores linguistic evidence of social change among the traditional priyayi elite of Surakarta in south-central Java. Employing data from texts, interviews, observed speech, and questionnaires, he shows a progressive leveling in the language used to denote traditional status differences, and he demonstrates how perceptions of speech styles reflect etiquette and the views of the users.

Cover of 'Javanese'

Javanese
A Cultural Approach
By Ward Keeler

Foreign language lessons often provide translations into a foreign language of phrases students would normally use in their native language and cultural setting. Particularly when studying a non-Western language, such direct translation is very misleading. Students must instead learn the conventions that guide human interactions, so they know both what to say and how to say it. In this text, therefore, the sociological context of Javanese is explained as thoroughly as Javanese grammar.
