Terengganu Malay is a Malayan language spoken by about 1.2 million people mainly in the state of Terengganu (Tranung) in eastern Peninsular Malaysia. There are also speakers of Terengganu Malay in the Malaysian states of Johor and Pahang
Although Terengganu Malay is generally considered a variety of Malay, it differs sufficiently from other Malay varieties in terms of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation to be mutually unintelligible with them.
Terengganu Malay is known as Terengganu or Terengganuan in English, Bahasa Terengganu or Bahasa Melayu Terengganu in Malay, and Base Tranung, Bahse Tranung, Bahse Tghanung, Loghat Terengganu or Cakak Tranung in Terengganu Malay. There are two main dialects: Inland Terengganu Malay and Coastal Terengganu Malay.
Terengganu Malay is used in songs, poems and in films, TV shows and on radio stations. There are ways to write it with the Latin alphabet and with the Jawi (Arabic) alphabet, however there is no standard orthography.
