The Atayal language is spoken by the Atayal people of Taiwan. Squliq and C’uli’ (Ts’ole’) are two major dialects. Mayrinax and Pa’kuali’, two subdialects of C’uli’, are unique among Atayal dialects in having male and female register distinctions in their vocabulary.

The language is recorded in an Atayal–English dictionary by Søren Egerod and several reference grammars (see References).

The Bible has been translated into Atayal and was published in 2002.

Atayal is written in the Latin script. Atayal was one of the source languages of Yilan Creole Japanese.
