Abstract: This study determined and analyzed the current status of the Visayan-Eskaya ethnolanguage (Iniskaya) of Taytay, Duero, Bohol, Philippines. One hundred forty one (141) respondents were asked to answer the Demographic and Language Profile Questionnaire. The accomplished language profile questionnaires and the recorded data from the interview were identified and tallied. The findings revealed that Boholano-Bisaya is dominantly used by the Eskayan tribe. An ethnolanguage (like Eskaya) is falling out of use and bound to be replace by the mainstream language of the bigger and more progressive communities in Bohol.
