Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief description of the ethnobotanical nomenclature found in the Guinaang dialect of Bontoc, Mountain Province. In addition to providing a listing and identification of many of the botanical terms, brief descriptions of the economic function of many of the plants is given, with folk descriptions of why the plants are named as they are. This data has been viewed in the light of an article recently published by Brent Berlin, "Speculations on the growth of ethnobotanical nomenclature," Language in Society 1.51-86 (1972), resulting in a few speculations of my own.
