Category:List of Philippine Languages
Philippines has over 100 languages and varieties connecting people in their respective regions, and ethnic groups. It is in this diversity of language that the term socio-linguistic group was formed, which emphasized the power of language to unite people speaking and understanding each other. Language here, is more than a symbol or code, or a communication tool but rather serves as a binding force to culturally define a group of people sharing a common culture. Language is used in expressing one's thoughts, beliefs, arts and customs, enriching their traditions, or a shift to changes and preferences.
