Abstract

This paper outlines some specific issues regarding language contact between the first language (Iban) and second language (Malay) that appeared when the Iban native speaker spoke Malay. Realisation of Malay vowels spoken by Iban speaker was studied using spectrographic analysis. The result highlighted some unique phenomenon of first and second language in contact. The findings of the study showed that there was a bipolar speech error (in the realization of specific vowels), that is, First Language Interference (GBIt) and Dilution of Two Systems (PDS) (i.e. first and second language confusion). GBIt pattern is a more conventional phenomenon in language contact studies, whereas, PDS seems to be a new issue in such study. Moreover, the PDS pattern seems more dominant than GBIt in this study. PDS pattern was classified into three categories; Intermediate System, Massive Over generalisation and Little Over generalisation. The findings triggered significant implications in language contact studies, particularly, to our understanding of second language error during communication in Malay, general perceptions on Iban and Malay as a language cluster, as well as the method of language study using laboratory technology.
