The glottal stop /ʔ/ replaces the orthographic
The glottal stop in non-word-final positions is observed in loanwords. As noted by Mintz (1994: 11), the glottal stop in Bazaar Malay may also occur between two identical vowels as in Malay. In this case, however, it is not represented at all in the
writing system: saat [saʔ.aʔ] 'time/moment', maaf [maʔ.aʔ] 'forgive'.
