Abstract: Ayta Abenlen is one of four Ayta languages which belong to the sambalic language family. Mostly related language besides the other Ayta languages like Mag-Anchi is Botolan Sambal. The speakers of Ayta Abenlen are located in the mountainous western part of the Tarlac province of Luzon, the area probably reaching into Sambales even on the western side of the Sambales mountains. There are about 6,000 speakers of the language. Data were collected since April 1989, first in Kayawedan, Labney, Mayantoc, Tarlac; and since May of 1993 in Tangantangan, Maamot, San Jose, Tarlac. The data include elicited sentences and paradigms, a 1,000-entry dictionary and about 10 stories as natural text. I would like to thank all the people from the Ayta Abenlen language group who helped with the collection of data.
