Indonesian or Bahasa Indonesia is the official national language of Indonesia, based on a version of Classical Malay, an Austronesian (or Malayo-Polynesian) language which had been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries. It is essentially the same language as Bahasa Malaysia, the official language of Malaysia. Indonesian was elevated to the status of official language with the 1945 Declaration of Independence. The language is remarkable in that only a tiny fraction of Indonesia’s inhabitants speaks it as a mother tongue (estimated at 17 million); for most people it is a second language. There are an estimated 200-250 million Indonesian speakers worldwide. It is also remarkable in that this level of fluency (nearly all Indonesian citizens speak the language) has been achieved since 1945. Most Indonesians also speak another regional language or local dialect. Indonesian is the primary language of formal education, national media, other forms of communication, and business. Through decades of military occupation, East Timor has also come to recognize Indonesian as an official language. While the Dutch colonization left an imprint on the language that can be seen in its vocabulary, Indonesian is constantly absorbing new loanwords from other languages.
