Area where Pahanan Agta is spoken according to Ethnologue

Paranan Agta is an Aeta language of Palanan, Isabela northern Philippines. Lexically it is extremely close to Paranan. However, this is due to convergence of that languages; the sources of the two languages are different, and this is reflected in their grammar.[3]

Pahanan Agta (Palanan Dumagat) is a distinct language separate from Paranan Agta.[4][5]
