Online Javanese Language Services
Javanese is the first language of almost 80 million people, most of whom live in the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra, although there are also some pockets of Javanese speakers in neighbouring Malaysia, especially in the states that share a border with Singapore. Despite its vast number of speakers, Javanese does not have official language status in Indonesia. The majority of Javanese native speakers can also communicate in Indonesian language, which appears to be the predominant language for commercial and business transactions. Nowadays, there are a few magazines written exclusively in Javanese, as well as some television programs broadcast in Javanese and some of its dialects.
From the early 16th century and until the beginning of the 1970s, Javanese was written using the Javanese script. In 1973 a new script was introduced, based on the Latin alphabet. Today, the old script is known by most Javanese speakers, but the Latin-based system is used increasingly more by the new generations, in software programs, and online.
Like other South East Asian languages, spoken Javanese relies heavily on a system of honorifics, or speech forms that vary according to the social status and age of the person being addressed. The specific rules governing the use of honorifics are intertwined with cultural factors. Therefore, mastery of the Javanese language demands extensive knowledge of Javanese culture.
