Abstract: 
Penyampai bermula dengan membincangkan tentang sejarah bahasa Melayu di Singapura hingga keputusan bahawa tulisan rumi dirasmikan sebagai persuratan Melayu. Bahasa Melayu baku layak digunakan dalam semua bidang; pentadbiran, pendidikan, perundangan dan sebagainya, setaraf dengan bahasa-bahasa lain yang didaulatkan. Namun, ketidaklihatan bahasa Melayu di dalam bidang-bidang tertentu di Singapura bukanlah kerana ia tidak layak digunakan tetapi kerana Singapura mempunyai dasar bahasa tersendiri. Bahasa Inggeris merupakan salah satu daripada bahasa rasmi negara manakala bahasa Melayu dan lain-lain bahasa ibunda diakui sebagai bahasa pemantap budaya. Penyampai merujuk kepada ucapan menteri di pembukaan rasmi Bulan Bahasa 1990 bahawa bahasa Melayu sekarang bukan berfungsi sebagi pemantapan kebudayaan Melayu sahaja tetapi akan menjadi bahasa hubungan ekonomi di rantau ASEAN.

The speech began by discussing the development of the Malay language in Singapore until the decision for the use of romanized script as a medium of writing in the Malay language. Standard Malay is suitable to be used in all fields; administrative, education, legislation and so forth. It is of equal importance as the other official languages. However, the absence of the Malay language in such fields is because the incresing use of Engslish in society while Malay and the other mother tongue languages are acknowledged as cultural languages. The speaker refers to the minister's speech at the official opening of the Malay Language Month in 1990 that the Malay language not only function as an enhancement of the Malay culture, but will also become a language for economic communication in the ASEAN region.
