Abstract

Inati is a language from Panay Island in the southern Philippines, spoken by the Ati ethnolinguistic group. There are two existing linguistic descriptions: Pennoyer (1985), and a small section in Lobel (2013). This paper discusses the current socio-linguistic situation of Inati based on two sets of fieldwork, gives background on the genetic relationship of the language to widely-used neighboring languages, consolidates and compares data from published linguistic literature, and identifies gaps for future research. 

Keywords: Inati, Panay, Philippines, socio-linguistic
