This article considers multilingualism among a group of ex-hunter-gatherers, the Penan in Brunei. Settled permanently since 1962, this small community of 55 people inhabit the sparsely populated subdistrict of Sukang in southern Brunei, the Penan constituting the smallest ethnic minority in the country. The article is primarily an ethnographic account, but also explains some of the reasons underlying causes of Penan’s patterns of language knowledge and use.
