OUTSYED THE BOX
So to insist that we want to teach our kids science and technology in the Malay language - which is still developing its infrastructure in this area - is to gamble with our future. Look at Myanmar, Sri Lanka and look at ourselves over the past 30 years.
That is why the Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka folks (the so called guardians of the Malay language) have created thousands of ciplak words like biologi, industri, kontraktor, sistem selular, demokrasi, reformasi and other 'borrowed words' from the English language. To help expedite the Malay language to acquire complex ideas and ever changing scientific information and knowledge. This is still work in progress.
