  • Filipino is based on Tagalog. Without Tagalog, I doubt if there will ever be a clear identification of the Filipino language. On second thought, maybe, Filipino will be based on Cebuano, or Ilocano, or Bicolano, or Ilongo which are also major languages. So I guess ra was right when he said he can speak Tagalog. Dba buddy? πŸ™‚
