  • Properly kecak. The spelling ketjak may be found in some old texts but this form has not been in use since the 1970's. A series of official changes to spelling rules were made at the time by the Indonesian government. Among them -tj-, which sounds like either the front or back end of the English word church, was replaced with -c-.
