Excerpt from change request document:

Central Malay is the proposed name for the language embracing the related Malay dialects of Pasemah, Lintang, Semendo, Ogan, Enim, Bengkulu, and Serawai Malay. Central Malay is the historic name for the languages found in the highlands of the Bukit Barisan mountains between South Sumatra, Lampung, and Bengkulu provinces. According to Adelaar quoting Voorheeve, the term Middle Malay is a poor translation of the Dutch name for these languages, Midden Maleisch, and properly translated should be Central Malay. (Adelaar 1992:4) Use of the name Central Malay will reflect these group of dialects long standing position of being related and sharing a common culture.
