Tagalog

Tagalog (/təˈɡɑːlɒɡ/;[6] Tagalog pronunciation: [tɐˈɡaːloɡ]) is an Austronesian language spoken as a first language by a quarter of the population of the Philippines and as a second language by the majority.[7][8] Its standardized form, officially named Filipino, is the national language of the Philippines, and is one of two official languages alongside English.

It is related to other Philippine languages, such as the Bikol languagesIlocano, the Visayan languagesKapampangan, and Pangasinan, and more distantly to other Austronesian languages, such as the Formosan languages of TaiwanMalay (Malaysian and Indonesian), HawaiianMāori, and Malagasy. Tagalog is the predominant language used in the tanaga, a type of Filipino poem and the indigenous poetic art of the Tagalog people.
