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.
There are also many dialectical variations within the Tagalog language. The dialects pronounce or write the language a little differently than the most common form of Tagalog. For instance in the south the glottal stop found after consonants and before vowels are different than standard Tagalog. With the origins having its place with Spanish influence for the main Tagalog dialect it is no different that other languages in respect to the changes in dialect. Since some of the population is more remote they often retain a Tagalog dialect purer that the standard Tagalog dialect.
