About the language

Kinaray-a is an Austronesian language spoken mainly in Antique Province in the Philippines. It is also spoken in several parts of Iloilo together with Hiligaynon. Due to regional proximity, media and television stations, Kinaray-a speakers can understand Hiligaynon speakers. However, only Hiligaynon speakers who reside in Kinaray-a speaking areas can understand the language. Those who come from other areas, like Negros, have difficulty in understanding the language, if they can at all.Kinaray-a belongs to the Visayan language family. Contrary to some misconceptions, Kinaray-a is not a variation of Hiligaynon; the two belong to two different, but related, language subgroups.
