Mohamad Said Hinayat (2003) compiled a glossary which compared words from several Bajaw-Sama languages, including WC Bajau words from Kota Belud. 21 The question mark reveals some uncertainty since (as mentioned above) the ‘instrument’ affix peN- could be interpreted as a voice construction.

The fleet of Johore warriors which escorted her was attacked by the Bruneians. The Johore princess was captured and married off to the ruler of Brunei. The Johore warriors could not return to Johore because they had failed in their mission. So some of them settled along the west coast of Borneo, while others became sea wanderers known as Bajau Laut (‘Sea Bajau’).

Prior to British colonial rule, which began in Sabah in the 1880s, the WC Bajau were (like the Kadazandusun and Brunei-Malay communities) under the nominal rule of the Brunei sultanate.
