Abstract:
This article contains a 337-item wordlist which was collected from three Bonggi villages on Banggi Island and one Bonggi village on Balambangan Island in Sabah, Malaysia. The wordlists are enhanced through descriptions of the phonetic, phonological, and morphological processes found in each wordlist. Previous claims that the variety of Bonggi spoken on Balambangan Island is a distinct dialect from the Bonggi spoken on Banggi Island are shown to be unsubstantiated.
