Description:At the Club house of the Uva Malay Association. The members have convened on short notice to meet the researcher. About 20 Malays are present. SN introduces the project and ask the Malays to introduce themselves. Group elicitation was dificult, which is why a small set of sentences was tested individually with some Malays later.
Sri Lanka Malay (SLM) is a restructured vernacular of Malay base spoken by at least five different communities in Sri Lanka which has evolved to be significantly divergent from other varieties of Malay due to intimate contact with the dominant languages of Sinhala and Tamil. The Malays in Sri Lanka, whose ancestry include laborers brought by the Dutch and British, as well as soldiers in the Dutch garrison, now constitute 0.3% of the population, numbering some 46,000. (See Ansaldo 2005, 2006, for more on sociohistorical aspects of SLM.)
