Abstract

This paper reports our study investigating to what extent language ideology constitutes a distinct unified system in the construction of identity in the Manggarai diasporic group in Bali, in the context of language maintenance in multi-ethnic diglossic situations. The findings are the following: (i) the Manggarai diaspora in Bali consists of various ethnic-linguistic groups, giving rise to a picture of diglossic language situation, mirroring how the Flores languages relate to each other in their place of origin; (ii) the minority languages mark as an internal Manggarian sub-group identity; (iii) they are under pressure from the national language (Indonesian) and Manggarai Tengah; (iv) Manggarai Tengah serves as a lingua franca that provides an external identity, and (v) the minority Flores languages do not play a significant role as identity markers in Bali. Further, our data shows that multilingualism and diglossia within the Manggarai diaspora is unstable. The findings highlight the challenges to maintain multilingual stability in a diglossic environment for diaspora minority groups.
