Lontar, name of a palm tree, from which in some parts of the country much toddy is drawn. Borassus Flabelliformis. The Javanese in East Java, call this tree Siwalan, and apply lontar merely to the leaves. Siwalan may still be Hindu, Siwa the god so called, alan, C. 49 an ornament = the ornament of Siwa. It is generally supposed that the original name of this palm was Rontal but that the initial and final letters have been transposed. Ron is said to be an old Polynesian name for leaf- and on Bali, Don means leaf which is evidently a contraction of Dahu-an = Don , see voce Daun. Tal is Tala, C. 229 the Palmyra tree. Dontal is thus the leaf - Palmyratree, on the leaves of which, in former times, the natives used to write, and by a slight inaccuracy of understanding the original words, they have transferred to the tree, a name which in its original only strictly applied to the leaves. (According to Gericke also the name of the tree in Javanese and Malay. In Bali also. The leaves are in common use on Bali and in some parts of the interior of Java as the only writing material Fr).
