Madurese is a member of the Malayo-Sumbawan branch of the Austronesian language family. It is spoken by about 14 million people in Madura Island and eastern Java in Indonesia, and also on the Kangean and Sapudi Islands, and by migrants in other parts of Indonesia.
Madurese was traditionally written with the Javanese alphabet, but is now more commonly written with the Latin alphabet.
Sadajana oreng lahir mardika e sarenge drajat klaban hak-hak se dha-padha. Sadajana eparenge akal sareng nurani ban kodu areng-sareng akanca kadi taretan.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
