Baba Malay

Notes on Baba Malay

Baba Malay, spoken by the Peranakans, is spoken by fewer than 1000 people in Singapore and is thus classified as an endangered language. It is a creole made from the mixing of Malay and Hokkien languages. Baba Malay takes its grammar from Hokkien and most of its vocabulary from Malay.

See the about us of ‘Baba Malay’ under ‘websites’, from which I summarised the above information.
