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.
