The Borneo Languages is a
monthly feature of the e-Borneo.com web site. Each month, we hope to feature several words
of the various Borneo languages and its translation to English. We will be collecting and
accumulating these words by different language categories over a period of time with the
aim to come up with a precise but comprehensive Borneo 'dictionary' as a means to preserve
our Borneo languages. We welcome valued visitors to contribute, especially pertaining to
rarely spoken Borneo languages.
