History and criticism
One of the first explicit classifications of a "Philippine" grouping based on genetic affiliation was in 1906 by Frank Blake, who placed them as a subdivision of the "Malay branch" within Malayo-Polynesian (MP), which at that time was considered as a family. Blake however encompasses every language within the geographic boundaries of the Philippine archipelago to be under a single group. Formal arguments in support of a specific "Proto-Philippines" were followed by Matthew Charles in 1974, Te...
The Philippine group is proposed to have originated from Proto-Malayo-Polynesian and ultimately from Proto-Austronesian. There have been several proposals as to the composition within the group, but the most widely accepted groupings today is the consensus classifications by Blust (1991; 2005) and Reid (2017); however, both disagree on the existence of a Philippine group as a single genetic unit.

The two official languagesof the Philippines are Filipino and English. Filipino is the national language, and the official status of English is a holdover from its time as a U.S. territory between the years of 1898 and 1946. Filipino is the primary language used in school and media, and it’s also the lingua franca that unites the nation’s disparate linguistic communities. You’ll mostly encounter English in government, newspapers and magazines.
Are Filipino and Tagalogmore or less the same language? Almost, but not quite. Filipino is an updated version of Tagalog that includes elements of other native Philippine languages, as well as English, Spanish, Malay and Chinese. Due to its status at the time as the main language spoken in Manila, Tagalog became the national language of the Philippines in 1937 when Congress voted to include a native language among the officially recognized languages. Eventually, Tagalog was renamed Pilipino, and when the Constitution was amended in 1973 under dictator President Ferdinand Marcos, Congress took steps to create a new iteration of the language, which was to be known as Filipino. Filipino then gained official status in 1987. The evolution of Pilipino into Filipino was part of Marcos’ efforts to create a “new society.” Part of this meant incorporating elements of other languages, often by replacing Tagalog words deemed “aesthetically unpleasing” with alternative words that sounded nicer....
The Philippines were under Spanish colonial rule for 300 years beginning in 1565, and during this time, Spanish was the official language (and remained the lingua franca even after it lost its official status). Spanish actually became an official language again, together with English, according to the Constitution of 1935, but it was demoted to an “optional and voluntary language” in 1987. There are also major regional languages spoken in the Philippines that include Aklanon, Basian, Bikol, Cebuano, Chavacano (a Spanish-based creole), Hiligaynon, Ibanag, Ilocano, Ilonggo, Ivatan, Maranao, Tagalog, Kapampangan, Kinaray-a, Waray, Maguindanao, Pangasinan, Sambal, Surigaonon, Tausug and Yakan. These are all mostly indigenous languages belonging to the Austronesian language family. Out of these, 10 languages account for the language over 90 percent of Filipino people speak at home. These languages are Tagalog, Bisaya, Cebuano, Ilocano, Hiligaynon Ilonggo, Bicol, Waray, Maguindanao, Kapam...
