Today the language that is spoken as Tagalog has been modified by the inclusion of words from other existing Philippine languages to give it a broader use. The Baybayin Alphabet depicts the actual written words of the Tagalog. While it has changed over the course of history to have a Latin alphabet as well there are still some notable features to consider. First the syllabic alphabet is the type of writing system. It means that each consonant has an inherent vowel. That is, the alphabet is like this a, ba, ka, da, ga, and on through the entire alphabet. The vowels can also be muted if a plus sign is added to the written language. Unlike most languages of Asia the writing style is left to right in horizontal lines.
When individual letters of a word has to be spelt out with proper nouns, etc the American Sign Language is replaced by the manual alphabet. Letters should be shown with the dominant hand and in almost all cases, with palm facing the viewer. Sign language charts have a list of several alphabets and Arabic numerical with it. All these are signed invariably with palms orienting them in different ways. For an example a closed fist denoted the alphabet A, flat hand represents the alphabet B. Letter C can be represented by keeping palm forward and thumb bent. Letter D is represented by stretching the palm flat and with index finger alone raised keeping all other finger closed.
