Seru (szd-szd) = 10 (Extinct).

E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23 lists Seru [szd] as an extinct separate Sarawak-Melanau-Kajang language. However, it has been known for a century that the Sru were a fraction of the Ukit [umi] who happened to end up at Sru, and indeed, “every word ...” in the wordlist of D. J. S. Bailey 1963 [1901] were understood by the Ukit [umi] “as belonging to their own language” ( De Rozario, F. 1963 [1901]: 332 ). See also: Ukit [umi].
