Notes: This provides the first published overview of the Austronesian of Borneo referred to as Penan. It debates the arguments that have surrounded the origins of the language and its speakers and goes on to locate this language within the Kenyah complex of Bornean languages, before providing an outline of the language in terms of its phonology and morphosyntactic features.
