JAVA AND THEIR EMPIRE
There are three types of Javanese according to their empire and languages. These are middle Javanese, new Javanese and modern Javanese.The middle Javanese was seen by the Majapahit Empire as the effective language. It is between the old and the new Javanese though the middle Javanese is almost the same with the new Javanese.A new era in the Javanese history has begun with the rise of Islamic Central Javanese Mataram Sultanate in the 16 century. This era is called the New Javanese. This empire rose as a revenge for the demise of Hindu Majapahit by crushing Demak.Some scholars nowadays are still studying on the modern form of Javanese, although it is almost the same with the new Javanese.
