The Rejang language of southwest Sumatra has a number of common vocabulary
items that are not shared with any languages known to me. Are there any
Austronesian languages with words to match these three?
dog kuyu' (probably pre-Rejang *kuyuk)
wealthy sugea' (probably pre-Rejang *sugiq)
wild pig jaoa' (probably pre-Rejang *jauq)
This last is +conceivably+ related to Malay jauh `far' via semantic change.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
