Etymology[edit]

(late nineteenth century) Attested circa 1850,[1] composed of Ancient Greek Ἰνδός (Indós) + νῆσος (nêsos, island); initially, in competition with Insulinde, of the same meaning, lexically constructed on a Latin basis, or in reference to the East Indies archipelago.

Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

Indonesia

  1. A country in maritime Southeast Asia, having Jakarta as its capital; modern Republic of Indonesia (since 1950).

    For reasons which will be obvious on reading a subsequent note, I prefer the purely geographical term Indonesia, which is merely a shorter synonym for the Indian Islands or the Indian Archipelago. We thus get Indonesian for Indian Archipelagian or Archipelagic, and Indonesians for Indian Archipelagians or Indian Islanders. I have no affection for the multiplication of semi-grecian words, and would gladly see all the nesias wiped off the map if good Saxon equivalents could be substituted.
