Abstract

The civilisation of Malay literature which began as early as the 16th century has promoted witnessed oral and written traditions through the great works of Malay scholars. These works are rich with implicit meanings that are not only meant for entertainment but also serve as advice and philosophical considerations to the keen eyes of the readers. One interesting aspect is space. Space is a significant element that becomes a manifestation of social relationships, time and thoughts. The implicitness is conveyed when an addresser uses particular lexical which concurrently is able to clearly extend the concept of space to the addressees. Apart from that, space in the Malay society is not just about physical space; it reaches beyond social space as well as temporal space. At other times, the concept of space may share functions within two different domains. For instance, physical space concept may also explain the concept of temporal space. This article examines and analyses the implicit utterances in Cerita Anggun Cik Tunggal that reveals the concept of space in Malay folklore. An observation on the implicit utterances will be discussed using inquisitive semantic approach. The analysis using inquisitive semantic approach that combines the data, theory, and the speaker’s cognitive as well as the philosophy not only demonstrates the Malay wisdom but also reflects the Malay mind behind the use of these utterances. The research findings show that the implicit utterances in Cerita Anggun Cik Tunggal relates space with power, physical size, strength and distance horizontally and vertically. The use and selection of these utterances also show that the Malays are sensitive towards their surroundings. Interestingly, the implicit utterances based on the physical spaces are intricately woven into the life of the Malays hence they become the reflection of the Malay mind.

These works are rich with implicit meanings that are not only meant for entertainment but also serve as advice and philosophical considerations to the keen eyes of the readers.

The implicitness is conveyed when an addresser uses particular lexical which concurrently is able to clearly extend the concept of space to the addressees.

At other times, the concept of space may share functions within two different domains. For instance, physical space concept may also explain the concept of temporal space.
