    Based on the research that has been done with the informant who works as a teacher, Palembang language has two kinds: everyday language (market) and subtle language termed bebaso. Bebaso was earlier used as a tribute to the king of Palembang. Bebaso smooth Palembang is the oldest language from other languages, but never got the influence from Javanese, Malay, Arabic, and Chinese.Fine language of Palembang is rarely used among teachers. It's a little different among housewives. Bebaso is usually still used to greet older people, such as the in-laws, grandparents, especially those who do have such a peerage; Raden, Raden Ayu, Masagus, and Masayu, Kemas and Nyimas, Kgs and Nyiayu which are genuine and true Palembang descent really mastered the fine or bebaso Palembang language. For now on, Palembang language (Bebaso) is rarely used among the people because it is rarely found native speakers, who are descendants of the original even many who did not know the subtle language of the Palembang. Generally, students in Palembang as Palembang language users do not produce Palembang language in every moment of their talks. There are still several items mixed with polite language of Palembang as we often hear. In terms of time, there is no mixed language in use. If there is something like that, then that is a generalization of the use of the language before language existed. Students’ speech behaviour in Palembang, which is seen from the aspect of linguistic politeness that would eventually lead to the extinction of this language in the community of language users, still in good category. Nevertheless, the existing cultural values cannot be maintained properly. It is seen from some conversations among students showing that politeness using Palembang language particularly in a delicate area is slowly fading. From the findings, it can be concluded that linguistic politeness, which is reflected in the use of language in the scope of the speakers of Palembang language, in this case students, is limited. Therefore, it is not impossible if later the polite language of Palembang (bebaso) will remain only the name. Key Words: BEBASO, students’ speech behaviour
