Makasar[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Malayo-Polynesian *daya (upriver, toward the interior), from Proto-Austronesian *daya (upriver, toward the interior).

Since the prestige dialect of Makasar is spoken on the western coast of the South Sulawesi peninsula, the originally relative meaning "toward the interior" was lexicalized as "east(wards)". In the Turatea and Bantaeng dialects which are located on the southern coast, raya means "north".
