Malay Concordance Project

Feel free to use the resources of this project.

The project aims to help scholars share resources for the study of classical Malay literature.  In the last year it has been consulted by scholars from more than 30 countries world-wide, who made over 20,000 searches.

Its main feature is a growing corpus of classical Malay texts, now comprising 165 texts and 5.8 million words, including 140,000 verses.  These texts can be searched on-line to provide useful information about:
     •   contexts in which words are used,
     •   where particular terms or names occur in texts,
     •   patterns of morphology and syntax.
