In the Malay Archipelago region in Southeast Asia, a distinct group known as “the Malay people” speak the Malay language. Over the years, the Malay language has been influenced by numerous social and historical conditions, which results in its present language structure and meanings. In present times, the Malay language is politically-defined to nation-state boundaries. Malay language is known as Bahasa Malaysia, and ethnic languages are named according to the states in Malaysia, i.e. Bahasa Malaysia Perak, Bahasa Malaysia Kelantan, etc. Similarly, the Malay language in Indonesia is Bahasa Indonesia.
It is important to note that although Indonesian and Malay may appear similar to individuals unfamiliar with the languages, differences between the languages do exist, mainly in their vocabulary.
