Abstract:This paper reports the results of fieldwork undertaken during the summer, 1987, on various little-known languages of the Philippines spoken by Negritos. The two languages discussed here are both known as Alta. For the purpose of distinguishing them, I shall henceforth refer to them as Southern Alta (ALTS) and Northern Alta (ALTN).2 The paper will discuss the degree of lexical relationship that Northern Alta and Southern Alta hold with each other, and with surrounding languages.
