Pasa Ular (pah-SAH OOH-lar) is an Austronesian language spoken in the Island of Panau by the Ular Tribe, Malay Archipelago. This is the Panauan dialect used by the Ular Tribe as well as the Ular Boys in Panau.

Since this is an Austronesian language, it is indeed related to Bahasa Panau so expect that there are similar words.

Bahasa Panau and Pasa Ular have almost the same grammar so Panauans can easily learn Pasa Ular.

The language uses Latin, Tamil, and Thai alphabets.

History of the Language (Kesi Pasa) Edit

A tribe called the Ular people lived in the Pacific Islands. They wanted to search for a better land, so they discovered the Panauan islands. They claimed it for themselves, thus being the natives or aborigines of the Panauan archipelago. They spoke Pasa Ular and it was widespread in the region.

The Ulars adopted Hindu and Tibetan scriptures, thus gaining the religions Hinduism and Buddhism. They built large temples all over the archipelago and most texts were written in Sanskrit, thus taking many loan words from it.

During the next centuries, lots of people from various parts of the Malay archipelago migrated to Panau. The Malay language was the language of trade and communication between other races and more people for various parts seem to be more than the natives, resulting more loanwords from Malay, Indonesian (Javanese, Sundanese) and Filipino (Tagalog, Bisaya).

The ongoing growth of Islam occurred but the Ulars stopped the influence, so the only portion that became Muslim was the desert. Not too much Arab loanwords had entered unlike Bahasa Panau.

Most islands were conquered by the Spanish, and others were caught by the Dutch, British and Portuguese. The Ulars were ignored and weren't happy. But some words entered in their vocabulary, but not too much.

During World War II, the Japanese controlled Panau and became very strict. The Ulars tried to fight them back, but the Japanese were too powerful. The Japanese also influenced their culture, so some words entered their language.

After Panau declared its independence, the Ular and the Panauan language were widespread among Ulars, but until Baby Panay succeeded his father, the Ulars were given limited human rights, so the resistance group Ular Boys had been formed.

Plurality (Pluralisalis) Edit

Put (unga) before the noun.

Pronouns (Unga Pronun) Edit

person singular form possessive singular form plural form possessive plural form
1st per. exclusive hami (we, excluding you) hamin (our, excluding you)
1st per. inclusive oko (I, me) -ko (my, mine) hito (we, includes you) hiton (our, including you)
2nd person kemo (you) -mo (your) kawo (you people) kanyo (your, plural)
3rd person jiha (she, he) -jo (her, his) reka (they) rekila (their)

Since there are no possessive forms for plural pronouns, use the formula: (noun) + (pronoun).

To use the noun "keme", which means hand, there is a lot of possessive combinations:

  • kemeko = my hand
  • kememo = your hand
  • kemejo = his / her hand
  • keme hamin = our hand (not you included)
  • keme hiton = our hand (you included)
  • keme kanyo = your hand (you guys, you people)
  • keme rekila = their hand

However, plural pronouns should not be confused with the sentences:

Unga keme rekila = Their hand

Reka we unga keme. = They are hands.

The notable difference is seen, in which in the second sentence, the word "adalah" is placed, which means is or am.

There are some pronouns for objects like:

Ayen -----> "This"

Ayot -----> "That"

In order to tell "this one" or "that one", place the word "yang" in order to be "yang ini" or "yang itu".

Sine----> "Here"

Sono --------> "There"

Prangyen =====> "Like this"

Prangto =====> "Like that"
