Chasing my Malay language dreams forever
The Member of Parliament for Titiwangsa, Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani
Like most of us, I dream. My dream of my malay language are vivid, rich in colour and detail. They fill in gaps in my workaday life we are so mesmerised by the difference that we become indifferent to our Malay language past, and now in the possibilities of our future. History might yet prove, using its special long hand, that differences pale before a common purpose. deputy minister Datuk Dr J. Loga Bala Mohan Never blame our Malay language for your whipping this inferiority complex of our Malay language we are all about exotica and become chauvinistically proud of our cultural heritage. Just like there is a saying that language is a mirror of culture of a country in which the language is used.It is generally agreed that language and culture are closely related. Language can be viewed as a verbal expression of culture. It is used to maintain and convey culture and cultural ties. Language provides us with many of the categories we use for expression of our thoughts, so it is therefore natural to assume that our thinking is influenced by the language which we use. The values and customs in the country we grow up in shape the way in which we think to a certain extent. Datuk Dr J. Loga Bala Mohan should take firm action on the misuse of our Malay language.According to Benjamin Lee Whorf and his theory of linguistic relativity, language shapes the way we think, and determines what we think about. He believed that depending on the language we speak we see the world differently.
