Tagalog language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and history
Tagalog is an Austronesian language spoken by the ethnic Tagalog people, who make up a quarter of the population of the Philippines, as a first language and by the rest as a second language. Its standardised form, officially called as Filipino, is the national language of the Philippines and, alongside English, is one of two official languages.
Tagalog is closely related to other Philippine languages, such as Bikol, Ilocano, Visayan, Kapampangan and Pangasinan, and more distantly to other Austronesian languages, such as Taiwan, Malay (Malay and Indonesian), Hawaii, Māori and Malagasy.
Ethnologists list Tagalog as dialects Manila, Lubang, Marinduque, Bataan (Western Central Luzon), Batangas, Bulacan (Eastern Central Luzon), Tanay-Paete (Rizal-Laguna), and Tayabas (Quezon and Aurora); however, there seem to be four major dialects of which the above are part: Northern (exemplified by the Bulacan dialect), Central (including Manila), Southern (exemplified by Batangas), Marinduque and Southern (exemplified by Batangas). At present, in the Tagalog-speaking areas, no systematic dialectology has been carried out, although there have been accounts of different Tagalog dialects in the form of dictionaries and grammars.
The number of speakers goes up to nearly 45 million if the number of people who speak Filipino, the national dialect of Tagalog, is counted. Although this can sound like cutting hairs, Tagalog is perceived to be Filipino, and not the same thing. It also combines vocabulary in the Philippines from numerous other languages spoken.
In other parts of the world, there are also Tagalog-speaking populations. In Canada, there are about 400,000 Tagalog speakers, and in the United States there are over 1.6 million speakers, making it the country's fourth most-spoken language and the sixth most-spoken in North America. This is due to Filipino migration, which mostly contributes to Filipino-American communities in Hawaii, but also in several other states.
