Dina panungtungan rasa katresna kuring ka anjeun

Her and Sundanese language
The translation of my love poem into soundanese language. I hope in HER the most beautiful of the Soundanese (you will not find more beautiful in the world) to bring me her sweet look on this translation.
Spoken by 20 million Indonesians, the Sundanese (Cirebon, Sunda, Priangan, Bogor, Basa Gumung, Krawang, Pringan) is the second regional language of Indonesia.
Besides the Pasundan of West Java, sunda is also spoken in the province of Lampung, and on the side of Bantarkawung, Pasir Batang and Sidareja. In all these areas, when they are rural, Sundanese remains the language to communicate, when it is cities, Indonesian, especially among the youngest tends to prevail. If it is teach in school, it seems that the Indonesian government wants to take it away.
Nevertheless, the local languages carry an ethnicity which is again important, and in West Java, the number of TV shows, newspapers and Internet site in the language increases. The regional government itself establishes a day devoted to the language every week.
The oldest inscriptions that we find were written on stone, then on copper.
Sundanese has sometimes been considered a rather coarse dialect of Javanese, especially in areas where it is mixed with it.
The Soundanese have long considered the Priangan dialect, spoken on the side of Bandung, Sukabumi, Garut, Ciamis, Tasikmalaya, Sumedang and Cianjur, as the noblest, richest and most refined, and in 1912, on the decision of the Dutch colonial government, it was officially considered as the standard language.
It was not until 1924 that the first language congress was held in Bandung. Three years later, Soeriadiradja will write a textbook to write Sundanese in schools, with Javanese characters. And it is with Jonathan Rigg in 1862, and the publication of a dictionary, that we can locate the beginning of knowledge of the language.
The Sundanese used different scripts to write it. The Javanese script and other syllabaries have been used ... today the Latin alphabet is often used with a really superb abugida.
Originally the ancestors of the Soundanese would have come from the Philippines 3,000 years ago.
