    I thought the language spoken in the Philipines was Tagalog. I have no real experience with FMAs, the region, or the people. Am I missing something?

      That's true for the most part. However, there's lots of Spanish influence. When I hear tagalog spoken I'm able to pick out a lot of Spanish words "profesor", for example.

        ...so Tagalog is like a base language, and Filipino is a dialect?

          Tagalog is the language, Filipino is the culture.

            I'm confused. You say Filipino is the culture, but this guys says it's the language. Is his grammar retardation seeping into his facts?

              No. Tagalog is a language that has loanwords and content from both local Filippino vernacular languages and Spanish, due to colonial influence. In other words, Tagalog had some of its own stuff, ate some other languages and had Spanish for garnishing.

              Chances are when someone says 'Filippino' or 'Pilippino' (as it's pronounced in Tagalog) they mean 'Tagalog'.

                As a student of Japanese I find it grating the way martialists masturbate over 'sensei', like sensei has some spiritual bond or metaphysical power to it that the word only half-conveys. "I.... AM.... SENSEI!!!!"

                Sensei is a teacher. That's all. I've had many senseis. At school. I'm not going to call you sensei like it's something awesome, 'cause I know plenty of crotchety old ladies who go by the same title, Mr Karate.

                  A thank you is in order for both Codos and Socratic.

                  Thank you for allowing me a small sip from your fountain of knowledge, so that I may quench my thirst of ignorance.

                    It's cool. I had a lecture or two on Tagalog once.

                        Some people claim to speak American or Mexican instead of English and Spanish, and they're not exactly wrong.

                          Chances are when someone says 'Filippino' or 'Pilippino' (as it's pronounced in Tagalog) they mean 'Tagalog'.

                          by the virtue of most of my friends here(almost all are pilipinos) they are taught in school:

                          pilipino- a person of the philippines
                          pilipina- woman pilipino
                          filipina- preferred pronunciation of pilipina, cuz it's more delicate
                          pinoy- slang term, just like 'brits' for the british
                          pinay- 'pinoy' for ladies
                          FILIPINO- their recognized language, derived from dialects such as tagalog, bisaya, illongo, etc. including their native 'gay lingo'. (hey languages evolve right?)
                          tagalog- main dialect of central luzon area.

                          hopes this helps.
