Tagalog is the language of the Philippine Islands. It is one of the most prominent languages of the Philippines. Its prominence has led it to also be called, Filipino. While the Tagalog language has existed for several years the government adopted the more common name to help with the acceptance of Tagalog among other Filipinos. According to statistics the Tagalog language is spoken as a first language by over 24 million individuals and as a second language by more than 65 million Filipinos.
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.
