Short Tagalog words may have short urls. For example:
1. The Tagalogs (the Tagalog people) live in Manila and nearby areas.
2. The Tagalog language is the basis of the Filipino national language.
When you ask a native of the Philippines what the country's official language is, the answer will be English and Filipino. That is decreed in the country's Constitution and that is what is taught in schools.
Highly educated Filipinos are very compulsive about making a distinction between the Tagalog language and the Filipino language. They will painstakingly give examples. A Tagalog sentence has few borrowings from English and Spanish, while a Filipino sentence liberally uses English- and Spanish-derived words.
The aim of this website is to help foreigners communicate with the average Filipino who naturally mixes Tagalog with words from English and Spanish.
