Atta is an Austronesian dialect cluster spoken by the Aeta (Agta) Negritos of the northern Philippines.

Varieties[edit]

There are three varieties according to Ethnologue.

Villa Viciosa Atta, supposed once spoken in Villaviciosa, Abra, is presumed to be related, but is unattested.[3]

Reid (1994) also reports the following locations for Southern Cagayan Agta.[4]
