This paper revisits a subgrouping hypothesis for the Rejang language of Sumatra presented in McGinn (2003), and offers a new hypothesis based on new evidence and on criticisms received from Austronesianists. The hypothesis to be defended is shown in (1). The subgrouping hypothesis shown in (1) above replaces the proposal by this writer (2003) illustrated in (2).
