Sundanese appears to be most closely related to Madurese and Malay, and more distantly related to Javanese.
Some Malay dialects, however, show only limited mutual intelligibility with the standard language; for example, Kelantanese or Sarawakian pronunciation is difficult for many fellow Malaysians to understand, while Indonesian contains many words unfamiliar to speakers of Malaysian, some because of Javanese, Sundanese or other local language influence, and some because of the independent development of Indonesian slang and colloquial parlance.
