As a minority race representing 8% of Sarawak and 0.5% of Malaysian total populations.
We have right to preserve our Bidayuh language in this competitive world from becoming extinct. We are responsible to keep ‘Bidayuh-Sadong’ language alive and effort to preserve,conserve and popularise it. There is also a tendency for those successful ones who are blended well in urban society to forget the root of our culture and heritage which are part of Bidayuh language identity. The younger generation can’t speak their mother tongue especially when inter-marriage has taken place that causing their younger members to ‘neglect’ or ‘forget’ their mothers tongue. This has been taking place among the modern Bidayuh youngsters and professionals that create a new image in this multicultural Malaysian society.
It was crucial for Bidayuh to preserve and maintain their traditions and cultures for prosperity and interaction if no effort to preserve the rich different ‘Bidayuh dialets’ from being lost due to inter-marriage with other major races and work migration to other part of the world.
The younger generation should not be ashamed to learn and speak our unique language, traditions and cultures as these represented our race and identity in this globalised world. Most of us are now educated in English, Bahasa Malaysia and even in Mandarin does not limits our opportunity to learn and use our Bidayuh language, particularly among the young generation from our community.
This is my attempt at building a comprehensive Bidayuh Dictionary from (Bidayuh-Sadong) dialect/language reference for the younger generation who would like to study/learn Bidayuh. The Bidayuh words references have been compiled by me from many sources, including internet searches, news and also from our fellow Bidayuh elders from Mentu, Serian. I also include English words as main references for our easy understanding. I appeal to all Bidayuh to support this research and providing us additional new words, places, plants, pictures, other references, comments and corrections.Kindly send to seber389@gmail.com for us to compile and publish in this blog. Please take note that I DO NOT response from any spam, malicious comments and unfounded enquiries. The Author of this Blog has discretion to terminate and not to response.
Your cooperation is very much appreciated to preserve “BIDAYUH LANGUAGE” for our beloved community.

We have right to preserve our Bidayuh language in this competitive world from becoming extinct. We are responsible to keep ‘Bidayuh-Sadong’ language alive and effort to preserve,conserve and popularise it. There is also a tendency for those successful ones who are blended well in urban society to forget the root of our culture and heritage which are part of Bidayuh language identity. The younger generation can’t speak their mother tongue especially when inter-marriage has taken place that causing their younger members to ‘neglect’ or ‘forget’ their mothers tongue. This has been taking place among the modern Bidayuh youngsters and professionals that create a new image in this multicultural Malaysian society.
It was crucial for Bidayuh to preserve and maintain their traditions and cultures for prosperity and interaction if no effort to preserve the rich different ‘Bidayuh dialets’ from being lost due to inter-marriage with other major races and work migration to many part of the world.
The younger generation should not be ashamed to learn and speak our unique language, traditions and cultures as these represented our race and identity in this globalisation world. Most of us are now educated in English, Bahasa Malaysia and even in Mandarin does not limits our opportunity to learn and use our Bidayuh language, particularly among the young generation from our community.
This is our attempt at building a comprehensive Bidayuh Dictionary from (Bidayuh-Sadong) dialect/language reference for the younger generation who would like to study/learn Bidayuh. The Bidayuh words references have been compiled by us from many sources, including internet searches and also from our fellow Bidayuh elders from Mentu, Serian. We also include English words as main references for our easy understanding.
