Minority languages are significant to note for its existence in the era of disruption. The development of the era led to cultural transition and transformation that were not limited to space and time. Minority languages in the context of this paper are regional languages. Indonesia has regional languagessince it consists of various ethnic groups. Indonesia is included in an endoglossic country which only has one official language, namely Indonesian. Foreign language interference is very possible in the era of disruption. Language retention measures need to be carried out, one of which is to maintain language through the elaboration of language. This paper presented an example of Madurese language to be potentially proposed as the official regional language. Several strong reasons are foundfor the Madurese language to be used as the official regional language, seen from the large quantity of the population. In terms of ecolinguistics, the Madurese language has a percentage of 47% related to Malay. Besides, the language of the Madurese population is widely spread throughout the East Java province so that the regional language of Madura can be the official language in the provincial area.
