Filipino is the official national language and one of the two official languages of the Philippines. It is also known as the modern Filipino alphabet. It is made up of 28 letters which are also called títik or létra, and each represents a spoken sound.
Out of 28 letters, 20 letters came from the native Abakada (Tagalog Alphabet), whereas another 8 letters borrowed from Spanish Alphabet. These are also classified either as patínig or bokáblo (vowels) and katínig or konsonánte (consonants).
Let's start with vowels.
Most languages in the Philippines share vowels /a/, /i/, and /u/. After centuries of Spanish colonisation and the standardisation of Filipino as the national lingua franca, the vowels /e/ and /o/ became more common.
The abakada, or Tagalog Alphabet, developed in 1930 by Lope K. Santos had only 20 letters (five vowels and fifteen consonants). The remaining letters were later added to make 28 letters out of which 23 letters are consonants.
Filipino numerals are the symbols used to write numbers in the Filipino script. They are used to write decimal numbers, instead of the latin numbers.
