100 percent certain, based on the evidence available
This study focuses on Kampong Rimun, an area that has resisted settlement of outside groups. The language is strongest in this community, but other communities have seen a far greater number of Iban migrants and intermarriage. Outside of the core population in this village, the linguistics situation is less positive.

MORE ON VITALITY
The Remun inhabit a complex polyglossic linguistic environment and most interact using a variety of codes on a daily basis. Outside of Kampong Remun, the younger generation uses Iban almost exclusively. The area used in this study represents the core of Ramun resistance to Iban linguistic influence.
