|(3,000 cited 1994)|
Umiray Dumaget is spoken along the Pacific coast of eastern Luzon from just south of Baler, Aurora to the area of Infanta, Quezon, and on the northern coast of Polillo Island (Himes 2002:275-276). Himes (2002) reports little dialectal variation.
Reid (1994) reports the following locations for Umiray Dumaget (Central Agta).
Umiray Dumaget is difficult to classify. Himes (2002) posits a Greater Central Philippine connection. However, Lobel (2013:230) believes that Umiray Dumaget may be a primary branch of the Philippine languages, or may be related to the Northeastern Luzon languages, Sambali-Ayta (Central Luzon), or Manide and Inagta Alabat. According to Lobel, Umiray Dumaget does not subgroup in the Central Philippine or even Greater Central Philippine branches (Lobel 2013:275).
