Developing the Filipino Language
The Constitution says:
“The national language of the Philippines is Filipino. As it evolves, it shall be further developed
and enriched on the basis of existing Philippine and other languages.”
How? How should the development of Filipino be implemented? What can be the form of a Filipino language that is acceptable to many? What morphological and syntactic features can be “ambag” to the current Filipino language? How would Cebuano, Bikolano, Ilokano, and Waray linguists and linguists from other regions change the current Filipino to make it more acceptable to them?
