The Malayic languages are a branch of the Malayo-Polynesian subgroup of the Austronesian language family. The most prominent member is Standard Malay, which is the national language of Brunei and Malaysia, and which also serves as basis for Indonesian, the national language of Indonesia. The Malayic branch also includes the local languages spoken by ethnic Malays (e.g. Kutai Malay, Kedah Malay), further several languages spoken by various other ethnic groups of Sumatra (e.g. Minangkabau) and Borneo (e.g. Iban). The most probable candidate for the homeland of the Malayic languages is western Borneo.
