The Central Tagbanwa people of the Philippines are on the verge of
losing their language forever. In the last sixty years, the ravages of
war and disease, and the large influx of migrants have drastically
altered the sociolinguistic dynamics of their homeland. There is no
question that Central Tagbanwa is an endangered language. If the trend
shown in this study continues, the Central Tagbanwa language will
become only a sentimental memory to the generation now being born. The
aim of this book is to preserve the linguistic heritage of the Central
Tagbanwa people for generations to come.

1. Historical Background
2. Sociolinguistic Dynamics
3. Phonology
4. Grammar

Appendices: Three Central Tagbanwa interlinear texts.

(Note: Central Tagbanwa is distinct from the other two mutually
unintelligible Tagbanwa languages spoken in Palawan province: Aborlan
Tagbanwa spoken in central Palawan, and Calamian Tagbanwa spoken in
the Calamian Islands off the northern tip of Palawan.)
