Indonesian Basic Course: The Djakarta Dialect.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
Seven everyday topics are discussed in Basa Djarkarta, a dialect of Malay spoken in Djarkarta by over three million people. The purpose of the reading text, part of the basic course in Indonesian for official United States military personnel, is to acquaint students with this increasingly popular dialect in addition to Bahasa Indonesian, the official dialect which they are attempting to master. A brief description of the phonological, lexical, and grammatical correspondences between the two dialects precedes the selections. The first unit introduces dialectal variants which appear in the articles. Word lists at the end of each reading selection provide English meanings for new words encountered. (PMJ)
