About the Pangasinan language
Pangasinan or Pangasinese is spoken by about 1.5 million people mainly in the province of Pangasinan, where it is the official regional language, on the west side of the island of Luzon in the Philippines. There are also Pangasinan speakers in other parts of the Philippines, particularly in the province of Benguet, and in some areas of Zambales, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya and Ifugao, as well as by immigrant communities in the USA.
Pangasinan is an Austronesian language belonging to the Philippine branch of Malayo-Polynesian languages, and is most closely related to Ibaloi, which is spoken in the neighboring province of Benguet and Baguio City, and also similar to Tagalog and Iloko.
Since the Spanish conquest of 1571, Pangasinan has been written with the Latin alphabet. Before then it was written with the Pangasinense script, which is related to the Tagalog script, and other scripts of the Philippines.
