Abstract: Bazaar Malay is a Malay-lexified pidgin that has served as a lingua franca in Singapore for more than a century. Its role, however, is fast disappearing. This study is based on research carried out in Singapore from January 2002 to July 2004. There are three major parts. Part I introduces the historical and sociolinguistic contexts in which Bazaar Malay has developed and highlights the social and economic dominance of Hokkien speakers in the region. Part II describes the grammar of Bazaar Malay, in terms of its phonology, morphology and syntax. Part III singles out those features of Bazaar Malay which can be attributed to Hokkien, the substrate language, and shows that substrate influence is not only pervasive but also systemic.
