Flores Languages and Dialects

Flores languages stem from the Central-Eastern Malayo Polynesian language group. Via this link by Glottolog you can start exploring the Flores language map, find the names of all various languages and the location where they are spoken. Then you also have the dialects and the influx of people from other islands. The school curriculum is in Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia, which literally means ‘Indonesian language’). Endangered languages : on the website of The Endangered Languages Project you see many orange and red dots in this region.

“Language is an intrinsic part of who we are and what has, for good or evil, happened to us.” — Alice Walker
