Dewan Bahasa Jauhar




By Willham Siau (Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia)







JOHOR BAHRU: "Dewan Bahasa Jauhar" (English: the Institute of Language of Johor), abbreviated DBJ, has been established by Jauhar Academy of Social Sciences (JASS), a Johor Imperial think tank affiliated with Johor Royalists Club for the advocacy of "Bahasa Melayu" (English: the Malay Language) as an additional official language of the United Nations.


Spoken by more than 300 million people, "Bahasa Melayu" is one of the 10 most commonly spoken languages in the world. "Bahasa Melayu" has long been a lingua franca of maritime Southeast Asia which covers Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and East Timor. Having "Bahasa Melayu" as an official language of the United Nations would expand its presence into Asia which is growing rapidly.


"Dewan Bahasa Jauhar" also has as one of its objectives to uphold the Johor-Riau Malay as the standard of "Bahasa Melayu".
