MORE ON VITALITY
Manide youth exhibit virtually no language attrition compared with older speakers, something that is exceedingly rare in minority - and even majority - ethnolinguistic groups in the Philippines today.
The Manide live primarily in the Tagalog speaking central and western two-thirds of Camarines Norte province in southern Luzon. A smaller number of communities live in the Bikol speaking eastern third of Camarines Norte. At least two communities are located in western Camarines Sur province in the towns of Ragay and Lupi. Another two communities are located in the eastern Extreme of Quezon province, in the towns of Calang and Lopez.
