Rejang is spoken by the Rejang people in Bengkulu, Indonesia. There are five major dialects.
Rejang is not obviously close to other Malayo-Polynesian languages. McGinn (2009) classified it among the Bidayuh languages of Borneo, closest to Bukar Sadong. It may be that it is related to the newly described language Nasal, but that is speculative at this point.
