Language used by Bantenese

The most dominant language is Sundanese [ [http://www.ethnologue.com/show_map.asp?name=IDJ&seq=20 Language maps of Indonesia (Java and Bali) ] ] [ [http://www.ecai.org/austronesiaweb/AustronesiaASP/PacificMapLeaf.asp?mapleafid=L039 ECAI - Pacific Language Mapping ] ] . The indigenous people living in Banten Province speak a Sundanese dialect derived from archaic Sundanese language. The dialect is classified as informal or harsh layer in modern Sundanese language, having different layers as Javanese language. [cite book

Due to the influence of the Javanese culture during the reign of the Islamic Mataram kingdom, the Sundanese language - especially in the Parahyangan area - have different layers starting from the most formal, or "halus" version, to the everyday "loma/lancaran" version and the informal or harsh version. Historically, Mataram Sulatanate tried to take control over Java island, including Banten territory covering the whole West Java region. But the Sultanate of Banten could defend its territory except Parahyangan area. In the mountainous regions and most of present-day Banten, the loma version of Sundanese language is the most dominant. By contrast, this version is considered "harsh" by people from Parahyangan.

However, in small cities of Serang and Cilegon, Banten Province, Banyumasan dialect of the Javanese language is also used by Javanese ethnic group. [ [http://www.ethnologue.com/show_map.asp?name=IDJ&seq=20 Language maps of Indonesia (Java and Bali) ] ] [ [http://www.ecai.org/austronesiaweb/AustronesiaASP/PacificMapLeaf.asp?mapleafid=L039 ECAI - Pacific Language Mapping ] ] . And, in Northern part of Tangerang, Indonesian language with Betawi dialect is also used by Betawi imigrants. Besides Sundanese, Javanese and Betawi dialect, Indonesian language is also widely spoken especially by other ethnic imigrants from other parts of Indonesia especially in urban centers.
