Lingo Episode #11: Kristang Part 2
Dr. Stefanie Pillai, Associate Professor, University of Malaya | Philomena Singho | Sara Sta Maria
Lingo is a show that’s about our relationship with language, how it goes beyond communication, and the impact it has on our lives, cultures, and traditions. This week, we explore a language that's endangered in our very own shores. Spoken mostly in the Portuguese settlement in Malacca, Kristang has a rich history, dating back to before the name Malacca was officially recognised. This episode, we go down to Malacca to speak to people working to revitalise the language.
