The arguments for considering Kenaboi a taboo-jargon are not compelling John Hajek 1998 , Geoffrey Benjamin 2006 . Although potential cognates can be found for a fraction of the Kenaboi forms Geoffrey Benjamin 2006 , they are widely scattered and without systematicity. The simplest explanation is then that Kenaboi is an isolated language and that the similarities to remote branches of Austronesian and Austroasiatic are chance resemblances.

Kenaboi, an extinct but attested enigmatic language of the Malay peninsula, is missing ( Geoffrey Benjamin 2006 , John Hajek 1996 , John Hajek 1998 , W. W. Skeat and C. O. Blagden 1906 ).
