Long time ago, I was wondering which is correct, Bahasa Melayu(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malay_language) or Bahasa Malaysia (no such links in Wikipedia).
Then like god sent, I watched an show on Bernama, where a senior government official, a very well and convincing punjabi guy providing his comments on why it will always be Bahasa Melayu and NOT Bahasa Malaysia. And as you can see above, even in Wikipedia, there was NO such links for Bahasa Malaysia. Only a search for Bahasa Melayu returned a precise result (fair enough).
Today, as I am reading the TheStar (http://thestar.com.my/ – a Malaysian mainstream English medium newspaper – for you non-Malaysians out there), I came across the term Bahasa Malaysia again! And this is a very language related article mind you!
The article in question is “The Encyclopaedia salesman” – a great article on Jimmy Wales, the guy who gave us Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/).

Hopefully, Elizabeth (the author of the article reads this blog and provides some answers).
Or anyone else can?
