Marshallese Information

Marshallese is an official language of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, along with English, and is used as the language of instruction in most primary schools, as well as in every day interaction. English is used primarily in business and government interactions with people who do not speak Marshallese.

Language Facts

Many of the difficulties in translation arise from the fact that many of the topics for translation are related to "problems" that have arisen in modern lifestyles - "lifestyle diseases" (heart, diabetes, cancer, etc.), legal issues, insurance and housing, that did not exist before and for which there are no Marshallese terms.

Marshallese has been an oral language with a rich and powerful oral tradition. However, there are now different alphabetic systems in use by Marshallese speakers depending on religious affiliation, due to many schools being run by church groups. Each teacher uses his/her preferred method of teaching and writing the language. As a result, children who attend the same schools tend to use the same spellings because of their teachers. Students in public schools vary their spelling from island to island, based upon what their teachers learned about language and spelling. Because of this, Marshallese spelling varies. Not only are there multiple orthographies in common use, but spelling is inconsistent within an orthography.

Writing

A standard alphabet was introduced in an attempt to bring order to this variation, but even without the standard orthography there is great room for fundamentally different approaches to spelling. Furthermore, the orthography does not distinguish between a variety of articulations, and there are many phonetically distinct words with identical spellings that can only be told apart by context.

There are two major dialects: Rālik (sundown, western) and Ratak (sunup, eastern). These dialects correspond with the two north-south axis chains of atolls comprising the Marshall Islands. The two dialects are mutually understandable, entailing a regular word-construction shift and some vocabulary differences.
