Tagalog (/ t ə ˈ ɡ ɑː l ɒ ɡ /; tə-GAH-log) (Tagalog pronunciation: [tɐˈɡaːloɡ]) is an Austronesian language spoken as a first language by the ethnic Tagalog people, who make up a quarter of the population of the Philippines, and as a second language by the majority.
Upon official adoption of the modern, 28-letter Filipino alphabet in 1987, the term Filipino was preferred over Pilipino.  Locally, some still use "Pilipino" to refer to the people and "Filipino" to refer to the language, but in international use "Filipino" is the usual form for both.
Given these two basic facts alone (That the first and only Filipino Dictionary published only in 2001 and the Filipino alphabet introduced only in 1989) suffice to show that FILIPINO as a language was a non-existent language at the time the 1987 Philippine Constitution was enacted.
