Title Tutong Language Documentation Project
Description Project funded by Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD). Audio and video texts were collected from Tutong speakers, generally aged above 60 yrs old, in the Tutong district of Brunei Darussalam, in 2007-2009. Project coordinator & recordist: Adrian Clynes. Speaker recruitment and Interviewer: Hj Ramlee Tunggal (retired secondary teacher, with a BA in Malay linguistics from UBD). Dictionary items elicitation: Juergen Burkhardt. Other support: Noor Azam Haji-Othman, Hj Ramlee Tingkong. Speakers of this language refer to it as (basa') Tutung or (with an older Malay-influenced spelling) Tutong. This is the only language in Brunei referred to in this way. The language label "Tutong 2" used by the Ethnologue following Wurm and Hattori 1981 is misleading. Wurm and Hattori's "Tutong 1" is referred to as the Dusun language in Brunei, and never (officially or informally) as "Tutong" (either 1 or 2).
