Lingo Episode #7: The Malay Language and Intellectual Discourse

Lingo is a show that’s about our relationship with language, how it goes beyond communication, and the impact it has on our lives, cultures, and traditions. We learn how to speak and write Bahasa Melayu in schools...but how much do we really know about the language? This week on Lingo, we find out the history of the Malay language and its role in developing Malaysia's intellectual life.
