3. I'm not Filipino but I can answer a couple of them
Edited on Wed May-05-04 12:30 PM by slackmaster
1. The language you're hearing is called Tagalog.

2. The "Ph" as an "F" sound doesn't work in Tagalog or in Spanish, which is also widely spoken there.

3. All languages that exist in close proximity share words over time, and bilingual people (like the many we have in Southern California) mix up languages. Often Language B has a better word for something than Language A. If I didn't understand and speak Spanish pretty well I'd have a hard time conducting business around here.
