Abstract 

This report summarizes the findings of two surveys carried out in the middle and upper villages along the Seruyan River. The first survey, done by Jim and Heather Meyers, Ben and Susan Rice, and Pak Penyang, covered both the middle and upper Seruyan counties. Word lists, sociolinguistic questionnaires, and one recorded text (from Rantau Pulut) were obtained. The second survey, done by Jim Meyers and Pak Penyang, also covered the middle and upper Seruyan counties. The major focus of the second survey was to do comprehension testing among speakers of the isolects of the Kohin language.
