A curious wordlist

Supposedly of the "natives of Sumatra", but there isn't a recognizable
Austronesian word in sight.  I believe "sea...Hai" is Chinese.  How about
the rest? Does anyone recognize anything? Bear in mind, it was published in
1773, apparently the result of one of Capt. Cook's voyages. The forms, of
course, must be pronounced as if they were English words, so "oo" is
apparently [u], "ee" is [i], most likely :-)))
