Malay grammar rules
Malay is an agglutinative language. New words are formed by three methods: attaching affixes onto a root word, formation of a compound word, or repetition of words or portions of words.
There is no grammatical gender. Number is not marked. Plurality can be expressed lexically by words such as ‘some’, or ‘all’, e.g., ‘some people’.
