PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION. 



Tliis vocabulary has been prepared for use in connection with my 
*" Practical Malay Grammar." It was originally intended to incorpor- 
ate with the Grammar an English-Malay and a Malay-English Voca- 
bulary, each containing some three or four thousand words, but in 
view of the fact that most people require a vocabulary containing as 
large a number of words as possible and are subjected to much dis- 
appointment and annoyance when they find that their vocabulary does 
not contain just the very word which they require, it has been thought 
better to publish the vocabularies separately and to make them an 
complete as is consistent with the low price at which such works are 
expected to sell. 

The list of words which is here offered to the public contains over 
six thousand words and phrases. In such a list it is of course impos- 
sible to include all the Malay words which may be met with in even a 
very limited range of Malay reading, and the student will no doubt 
meet with some expressions in conversation with Malays which will 
not be found in this vocabulary. Great care, however, has been 
taken in the selection of the words, and it is hoped that very few 
which are jn common use or are likely to be needed by the student in 
the first two or three years of his study of the language have been 
omitted. 

In this vocabulary, as in the " Practical Malay Grammar," the 
Malay words are printed in roman letters only. Comparatively few 
Europeans make any serious attempt to learn the Arabic character, and 
those who do will no doubt require a dictionary rather than a voca- 
bulary. The omission of the Arabic characters has enabled the 
-printers to put out this work in a very compact form and at a cost 
considerably below what it would otherwise have been. 

The great defect of Malay vocabularies printed in the Roman 
character has always been the difficulty of finding many of the words 
owing to variations of spelling. This has been particularly the case 
in regard to the romanization of the short vowel sound, which even 
in the same work has been represented by different letters in different 
words, according to the derivation of the word or the fancy of the 
author, so that in many cases the student has had to hunt for a word 
in two or three different places before he has been able to find it. 
This difficulty has been obviated in this work by the adoption of the 
same system of romanization which has been used in my Grammar and 
in all the oilier Malay publications of the Methodist Publishing House. 



v PKEFACE. 

Its peculiar feature is the entire omission of the short vowel. This, 
makes- it just a.< easy to find a word containing the short vowel as it i 
in a Malay dictionary printed in the Arabic character, for instead of 
having to look up such a word as nschaya or psaka under two or three- 
differe*nt vowels, the student will be able to find it at once from the 
sound. It is believed that this will be found to be a very great ad- 
vantage. 

The introduction should be carefully studied by those who dc.-iiv 
to make an intelligent use of this vocabulary. Part of the introduc- 
tion has been reproduced from the Grammar, but there will also be- 
found a large amount of entirely new matter explaining the use of 
prefixes and suffixes, the accentuation of Malay words, and the u st- 
and pronunciation of foreign words, etc. The student should not fail 
to make the fullest use of the Grammar, not only on account of tin- 
importance of thoroughly understanding the grammatical construction 
of the language, but also because he will otherwise be unable to pro- 
fit by the frequent references made in the vocabulary to the numbers 
of the paragraphs in the Grammar, where fuller information will be- 
found in regard to the use of certain words than could be given in a 
vocabulary. 

Derived words will only be found under their roots. Owing to 
the immense number and variety of the derived forms in the Malay 
language, this is the only arrangement which is at all satisfactory, and' 
has been adopted in all dictionaries and in one or two vocabularies. 
At first the student will no doubt have some difficulty in finding out 
what is the root of some of the derivatives, and it will be necessary 
for him to make himself thoroughly acquainted with the use of pre- 
fixes and affixes; this, however, will be found to be a blessing in di>- 
guise, for it is impossible to read or speak the Malay language intelli- 
gently without a thorough understanding of the derived forms. 

An appendix containing lists of English words with their Malar 
equivalents has been added. The vocabulary itself contains many 
similar lists; for instance a list of the different classes of workmen will 
be found under tuTcaiy, a list of the classifiers or numeral coefficients 
tmder-s-, cloths under Tcain, stones under batu, etc. The lists of nauti- 
cal terms and diseases should be of special use to sailors and doctors- 
respectively, and housekeepers will find a very complete list of foods 
and household terms. 

In the preparation of this vocabulary I am particularly indebted; 
to Favre's Malay-French Dictionary and to Klinkert's Malay-Dutch 
Pocket Dictionary. When in doubt as to the precise meaning of M 
word I have occasionally referred to Wilkinson's Dictionary, Part I y 
but as the second part has not yet been published this work has only 
been referred to in regard to such words as come in the first half of 
the Malay alphabet. My list of words has been compared with other 
vocabularies in order to ensure that no important word has been 
omitted. Several alterations and additions have been made at the-

suggestion of Dr. Luering, and my thanks are due to him for the 
valuable assistance which he has rendered me by reading and criticis- 
ing the manuscript previous to publication.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION. 

The demand for a new edition of this vocabulary has enabled 
me to correct a few errors which crept into the first edition, and to add 
a number of words which, though not in frequent use, are liable to be 
met with by the student. 

An attempt has also been made in this edition to indicate words- 
which are peculiar to the Malay spoken by the " Babas," or Straits- 
born Chinese, and some of their differences of pronunciation. The 
difference between Baba Malay, and the language as it is spoken by the 
Malays themselves, consists, however, not merely in such variations as 
can be shown in a vocabulary. There is a radical difference in the 
structure of the sentences. For the most part the same words are used r 
but the idiom is different, and would require a more thorough elucida- 
tion than could be given in the introduction to a vocabulary. It is 
hoped, however, that the Baba Malay words here given, marked (B.) r 
will help to explain some of the peculiarities of pronunciation met 
with in the Settlements, where Chinese influence predominates.

INTRODUCTION. 



The Vowels. 

The five vowels have the continental sounds : 
as in father. o as in hole. 

e as the ey in they. u as in rude. 

i as in ravine. 

In open syllables these vowel sounds have always a greater degree 
of intensity than in closed syllables. 

In addition to the above there is in Malay, as in nearly all Orien- 
tal languages, another simple vowel sound which is often called the 
short vowel sound. In the different systems of romanizing, this short 
vowel sound has been variously represented by a, a, e, e, i, i, u. u; 
but all these different methods of representing this vowel sound are 
open to the great objection that they mislead Europeans and even 
natives into giving it an incorrect pronunciation, and in a dictionary 
they have the additional disadvantage of giving rise to so much divers- 
ity and uncertainty in the spelling of words containing the short 
vowel that prolonged search is often necessary before it can be dis- 
covered which of these vowels has been used by the lexicographer to 
represent the short vowel in the particular word which is being sought 
for. Experience has shown that the best way to spell words contain- 
ing the short vowel with a view to helping the student to a correct 
pronunciation, is to omit the vowel altogether, and it is believed that 
the omission of the vowel will obviate the difficulty of finding such 
words in the vocabulary. The exact sound of the short vowel should 
be learnt if possible from a Malay; it is almost identical with the 
half-vowel sound in the first syllable of such words as " machine " and 
" balloon." 

When two vowels come together, both must be sounded, but the 
first must be run into the second; thus au has very nearly the sound 
of ow in "cow," as pisau, man; and oi has almost the sound of the 
English i in "ice," as, sunjai, pakai. 

Consonants. 

The consonants in Malay are pronounced as in English, except 
that the r should always be sounded much more clearly and with more 
of a riig than in English. The consonant ry represents a single sound 
in Malay, and should be pronounced like the ng in " singer," never as 
in " single ;" the latter sound is represented in Malay by njg; thus the 
two sounds are found in the words: si-nja and sirg-gah. The letter k 
in Malay when it occurs at the end of a word is not sounded like the 



INTRODUCTION. vii 

English ~k, but the syllable in which it occur? must be pronounced 
very short indeed, and the breath drawn in so as to produce the 
shortening of the sound. The apostrophe at the end of a syllable 
indicates a similar abrupt sound. Final h has also the effect of 
shortening the last syllable, but not more than half as much as final Jc. 

In the transliteration of the purely Arabic letters no distinction 
has been made between o and * ; ^ and ^> ; -r and o ; or ^ 

and i> The other Arabic letters have been transliterated as fol- 
lows: ^ th. kh, j dh, j z, JL sh, ^ dl, ii tl, .gh, >_* f. 

The nasal letter 'am c. which changes its sound according to the 

vmvel written with it, is represented by a rough breathing (*) placed 
before the vowel. The purely Aiabic letters given above are very 
generally mispronounced by Malays, dh being pronounced as z, th as 
>. and sometimes f as p, and z as j. Such words are given in the 
vocabulary under both letters in order to make it easy for the student 
to find them; thus idhin will also be found under izin, and thalatha, 
under salasa. 

Orthographic Signs. 

As already stated, the inverted comma represents the Arabic nasal 
letter 'qin. It is placed before the vowel which has the nasal sound, 
as in the words 'ahini, 'Um,u, m'alim, do'a. 

The apostrophe represents the Arabic sign -hantzah, both at the 
end of a word as described above and also in the middle of a word 
between two vowels, where it indicates that the vowels must be pro- 
nounced separately ; this is also the case where the short vowel sound 
is followed by another vowel, as in the words s'isi, k'atas, t'akan, the 
hanizah being used in such cases in the Malay character. The apos- 
trophe is further used to indicate an initial short vowel before the 
consonants m and n, as in the words 'max, 'ntah, 'njgan, etc. 

The hyphen is used in this Vocabulary to show the division of 
the words into syllables, except where the division is marked by an 
apostrophe or an inverted comma or by the mark ' which shows where 
the accent falls, as described below. In ordinary writing the hyphen 
should only be used where a word is reduplicated, or to separate 
from the words to which they are attached those prefixes, suffixes 
and other particles which do not foum an integral part of the 
word itself; these are: the preposition /-. the abbreviated numeral 
*'-. the passive prefix di-, the pronominal suffixes, -leu, -mu, and 
-tya, and the particles -lali, -kah, -nah, -tati. The preposition di is 
distinguished from the passive prefix di- by the absence of the hyphen. 



viii INTRODUCTION. 

References to the Grammar. 

Words which are followed by numerals in parentheses are re- 
ferred to in the " Practical Malay Grammar " in the paragraphs of 
which the numbers are given, where in every case some Further 
explanation of such words will be found. By this means the Voca- 
bulary becomes to some extent an index to the Grammar, and in 
regard to the use of certain words the student is enabled to obtain a 
large amount of information which could not possibly be looked for 
in a Vocabulary. 

Root Words and their Derivatives. 

In the Malay language a very large number of words are derived 
from root words by the addition of prefixes or suffixes. Sometimes 
several prefixes and suffixes are attached to the same word, and there 
is so much variety in their use that it would be extremely cumbersome 
to insert all such derived words in alphabetical order as separate words. 
The plan which is followed in this vocabulary is that which has been 
adopted in all Malay dictionaries, namely to put all derived words 
under the head of the roots from which they are derived. 

Some prefixes and suffixes are only used to form nouns, and 
others are used with verbs. The former are : 
Prefix p, which denotes the agent. 

Prefix p and suffix an, forming abstract nouns from verbs. 
Prefix per and suffix an, forming verbal nouns from verbs. 
Prefix k and suffix an, forming nouns from adjectives and 

nouns 
Suffix an forming nouns from verbs, and usually expressing 

the thing which is affected by the action. 
The verbal forms are : 

Prefix ber, which forms present participles with intransitive 

verbs. 

Prefix ter, which forms past participles. 
Prefix di-, which forms the passive voice. 
Prefix m, used with transitive verbs. 
Suffixes kan and i, which form transitive verbs. 
In this vocabulary the derivatives will be found in the follow- 
ing order: (1) compound words and phrases formed with the simple 
root in combination with other words; (2) the verbal derivatives; 
(3) derived nouns. Only those derivatives are given which are in 
ordinary use; the fact that any particular derived form is not found 
in the vocabulary must not be taken as an indication that it cannot 
be used. 

In the case of words which are essentially verbs or can be used as 
verbs in the root form, the derivative formed with the prefix b<>r or ///. 
as the case may be, is given immediately after the root. Where the 
prefix ber is thus given it may be taken to indicate that the verb is in- 



INTRODUCTION. ix 

transitive, and where the prefix is m that the verb is transitive ; in the 
latter case one of the suffixes Jean or i is sometimes given to show 
which of these forms is most commonly used; in some cases either 
may be used. Some roots may be used either transitively or intran- 
sitively, in which case the derivatives with ber and m are both given. 
It must be understood that the prefix m can always be used with deri- 
vative verbs formed with the suffix Jean or i; this being the case it has 
not been thought necessary to give the derivative formed with m as a 
distinct form of the word. 

In derived words formed with the prefixes ber, ter, per, di- and Jc, 
the first syllable of the root undergoes no change, and the word can 
therefore usually be discovered without any difficulty, but with the 
prefixes m and p the root in many cases changes its form. A refer- 
ence to the following list of changes will usually enable the student 
to decide what the root is : 
If the root commences with 

I, m, n, or r, it undergoes no change ; 

b, the prefix becomes mm or pin, as buka, mmbuJca; 

p, the prefix becomes mm, or pm, and the initial p of the root is 
elided, as putus, mmutus; 

d or /, the prefix becomes mn or pn, as dapat, mndapat; 

t or cli, the prefix becomes mn or pn and the initial t or cli of 
the root is elided, as tarcih, mnaroJi; 

g or li or a vowel, the prefix becomes mrg or prg, as gali, 
mrg gali ; 

Jc, the prefix become mrg or prg and the initial Jc of the root is 
elided, as Jcararg, mrgararg ; 

s and sometimes ch, the prefix becomes mry or pry and the 

initial s or cJi of the root is elided, as suroh, mryuroli. 
The chief difficulty in discovering the root arises when the root 
commences with p, t, or Jc, from the fact that when the initial letter 
has been elided there is no means of knowing what that letter may 
have been; thus the root of m,mutus might be either mutus or putus, 
and that of mnaroh and mrgararg might be either naroh or taroli, or 
kararg or ararg respectively. When in doubt the student must look for 
both forms. Thus with derivatives commencing with mry, the root 
should first be sought for under the more common letter s and then 
under cli, those commencing with mn should be looked for first under 
t and then under n, those commencing mm under p or m, and those 
commencing mrg under Jc or under the vowel which follows the mrg. 
Similarly of course with derivatives formed with p in its various 
forms. 

Words of Foreign Origin. 

The Malays have a remarkable aptitude for adopting foreign 
words, which in most cases become assimilated to the Malay style of 
pronunciation, the spelling being sometimes changed to suit the new 



x INTRODUCTION. 

pronunciation. It is important that the student should know the 
source from which such foreign words have come, in order that he may 
be able to discriminate between synonymous words and decide which 
should be used in conversation with the various nationalities ly 
whom Malay is spoken. Thus one would not hesitate to use words 
of Chinese origin in speaking with the Baba Chinese, or to use Javanese 
words in conversation with persons who come from the Dutch Indies, 
whereas one should avoid words of Arabic or Persian origin except 
when speaking with educated Malays. It should be remembered, 
however, that some foreign words have become so thoroughly incor- 
porated in the language as to be well understood by all, as for instance 
such words as waktii, 'umor, smoa, burni, fikir, fakat, etc. A large 
number of English, Portuguese and Dutch words, however, though 
well understood in the Settlements, are practically unknown to native*. 
living in the interior, so that it is necessary to exercise some disere- 
tion in the use of such words. 

Spelling: of Foreign WorJs. 

Malay lexicographers have usually romanized words of foreign 
origin in harmony with the spelling of the language from which such 
words are derived rather than with the way in which they are pro- 
nounced by Malays. This plan of having a different system for roman- 
izing foreign words causes great confusion in a vocabulary and has 
been avoided as far as possible in this work. Such words will be 
found spelt phonetically according to the Malay pronunciation. Thus 
Sanskrit and Arabic words which are pronounced by Malays with the 
short vowel sound are so spelt in this vocabulary, whereas most lexi- 
cographers who use c for the short vowel have spelt such words with 
a, i, or u, as tanira, nixcJwya. and pusaka, which are here spelt in Ira. 
nschaya and psaka. The former arrangement, though perhaps scienti- 
fically correct, presents such unnecessary difficulties to the unsophistic- 
ated mind that a consistent system of phonetic spelling appears pre- 
ferable. Again it may be more accurate to write kalimat shahadu/. 
but as the Malays always say klimah shah a flat, it would be misleading 
to spell otherwise. 

Accent in Root Words. 

In order that one may pronounce correctly, it is just as important 
to know on which syllable the stress should be laid as it is to have 
every word spelt phonetically. A novel feature of this vocabulary 
is that the stress on each word is shown by means of an accent, in the 
same way as is done in Webster's Dictionary. It will be noticed 
that in root words the accent usually falls on the penultimate. When 
the vowel of the penultimate is short, however, the accent very fre- 
quently falls on the last syllable. In some two-syllable words there 
is an almost equal stress on the two syllables, and in such cases the 



INTRODUCTION. xi 

accent depends a great deal upon the position of the word in the sen- 
tence. For instance when the words tiarg, lurun or tahan come at the 
end of a sentence the accent falls on the last syllable, but when placed 
elsewhere in the sentence there is some uncertainty as to the accent, 
though it generally seems to be on the penultimate. Words of Arabic- 
origin are often accentuated by the Malays in a manner different from 
the Arabs. In this vocabulary no attempt has been made to indicate 
the original Arabic pronunciation; the aim has been to accentuate 
every word in the way in which it is ordinarily pronounced by Malays 
in the colloquial language. 

Accent in Derivatives. 

Many authorities on the Malay language have maintained that in 
derivatives the accent moves forward on the addition of a suffix from 
the penultimate of the root to the penultimate of the derived word. 
The Dutch scholar van der Wall was the first to controvert this 
theory, which is also opposed by the grammarian Gerth van Wijk, and 
is undoubtedly incorrect. As a rule the accent in derivatives remains 
on the same syllable on which it stood in the root, the principal excep- 
tions being words ending in arg, in which the accent falls on the penul- 
timate of the derivative on the addition of the suffix an. Those who 
wish to see the arguments on both sides of this question will find it 
fully discussed in a paper on " The Evohition of Malay Spelling," in 
No. 36 of the Journal of the Straits Branch of the Eoyal Asiatic 
Society, published as a separated paper by the Methodist Publishing 
House. 

In regard to the division of the syllables it will be found that on 
the addition of a suffix commencing with a vowel the final consonant 
of the root is carried forward to commence the new syllable. The 
Malays invariably divide the syllables in this way, each syllable being 
begun with a consonant wherever it is possible. The same thing is 
done when a prefix ending in a consonant comes before a root com- 
mencing with a vowel, as m-tya-k-n from mig and aim. 

Synonyms. 

Another special feature of this vocabulary is that synonyms or 
words of cognate meaning and sometimes those of exactly opposite 
meaning, are referred to in the case of a very large proportion of the 
words. This is intended to open up a very wide field of study to those 
who wish to make a careful comparison of the precise meanings of 
Malay words, and who desire to be #ble to discriminate between words 
of nearly similar meaning. The advanced student is strongly re- 
commended to make such words a special study.
