Abstract

This paper deals with Javanese as an endangered language in Central Java. It proposes an argument that language maintenance is not a matter of linguistics alone. It should involve the improvement of ethnic identity, local pride, cultural heritage and linguistic attitude to the given vernacular. In terms of language vitality, the ngoko style code is stronger than that of the basa counterpart so that it is worth strengthening to counter Indonesian, which is popularly used right in the home-areas of Javanese.
