Language choices and challenges in Indonesia

Mon, July 1, 2019   /   04:32 pm

The complexity and hybrid nature of language in Indonesia means the Indonesian language still vies with other tongues—and even with itself—in the choices people make about how they express themselves. Sociolinguists Assoc. Prof. Novi Djenar and Dr. Michael Ewing examine how the national language is faring in the hyper-polyglot archipelago. Presented by Peter Clarke. An Asia Institute Podcast. Produced and edited by profactual.com. Music by audionautix.com.
