Abstract: The term CENTRAL CORDILLERAN (CC) is here applied to a group of languages spoken mostly in the mountains of Northern Luzon, Philippines. These languages are Kalinga (spoken in the province of Kalinga Apayao), Itneg (spoken in Abra) , Bontok (spoken in Mountain Province), Kankanay (spoken in the west of Mountain Province and in Benguet), Balangaw (spoken in the east of Mountain Province), and Ifugao spoken in the province of the same name). The group also includes one language spoken in Nueva Vizcaya--Isinai. On the basis of various kinds of evidence, to be presented in this paper, it seems probable that these languages all descend from a single parent language, here labeled PROTO CENTRAL CORDILLERAN (PCC).
