It is suitable to be used as reading and reference material for linguists, scholars and language teachers.

Focus and Scope
The articles included in this journal focus on the latest linguistic studies by academics from within and outside the country, especially articles concerning Bahasa Melayu, and those from the same language family. Only quality articles or scholarly writings with authoritative references are selected for publication. Those fields of linguistics in which there have been few studies in the Malay language will be given preference. Studies of Bahasa Melayu may be from within or outside the geographical area in which Bahasa Melayu is spoken. The articles are published in Malay with English translations of titles, abstracts and key words.
The evaluation process may take one to four months. It involves:
- A review of the format and content (according to scope)
- A double blind review
- Correction by the writer (if necessary)
- Editorial decision
