Abstract

Previous studies of geography dialect in Malaysia gave some general informations about the distribution of Malay dialects based on phonological and lexical differences. These works established the basis of geolinguistic study today. The present study examines the realizations of linguistic variants of two lexical items, namely 'curry leaves' and 'kesum leaves' in the dialects of Malay spoken in Langkawi Island. Based on the geolinguistic analysis, linguistic elements is incorporated with non-linguistic features, such as topography, delineation, migration and history.A total of 90 respondents have been selected comprising of teenagers, adults and the elderly. The elicited data are analyzed and processed by the Geographic Information System (GIS) software. The study has accomplished its main objective, that is, to identify the use of linguistic variants of the two lexical items. Additionally, the comparison and distribution of lexical variants of each lexical item have been successfully mapped into chloropleth technic. Consequently, the application of GIS software displays the geographical factors that govern and determine the distribution of those variants in Langkawi. The findings demonstrate that Padang MatSirat, Bohor and Kuah are the native areas of Langkawi Malay, meanwhile in Ayer Hangat and Ulu Melaka most of the respondents speak Satun Malay. Subsequently, in Kedawang district, the people converse in Patani Malay. The distribution of these dialects is determined by historical, geographical and socio-cultural factors. The present study is more elegant, systematic and convincing because it is supported by GIS technology and multidisciplinary approach.
