EtymologyEdit

From Malay istimewa, from Classical Malay istimewa, said to be from Sanskrit आस्तामेव (āstāmeva, literally May it keep on being so.), i.e. आस्ताम् (āstām), the middle-voice 3rd-person singular imperative of आस् (ās, to sit; to continue; to exist; to last) + एव (eva), a particle for emphasis. However, the form may have been influenced by Arabic loanwords.
