Area where Southern Alta is spoken according to Ethnologue
Southern Alta (also called Kabuluen, Kabulowan or Kabuluwan), is a distinctive Aeta language of the mountains of northern Philippines. It is not close to Northern Alta or to other languages of Luzon.
Southern Alta is spoken primarily in the Sierra Madre of eastern Nueva Ecija and in nearby coastal areas of Quezon Province (Reid 1991:2). Lawrence Reid (1991) collected data from San Miguel, located east of Rio Chico, a barrio (barangay) of General Tinio, Nueva Ecija.
