Title: A short morphology, phonology and vocabulary of Kiput, Sarawak
Written By: Robert A Blust

Kiput is a member of the Berawan-Lower Baram branch of the North Sarawak subgroup of Austronesian languages, spoken by perhaps 450 people. The entire language community resides in a single longhouse known variously as Long Kiput, Long Tutoh or Kuala Tutoh, located on the Baram river, Fourth Division, Sarawak, about one kilometre from its junction with the Tutoh. Very little has been published on this language. The principal aim of the present work is to provide an overview of the synchronic morphology and phonology of Kiput, a considerably longer and more accurate vocabulary than that in Ray (1913), and several hundred sentences.
