A language native to the southern part of the island of Luzon in the Philippines. The Tagalog language is the main base language for the one of the official languages of the Philippines, Filipino (the other official language is English). The language, like most of the languages of the Philippines, is related to Malaysian, Indonesian, Hawaiian, Tongan, Somoan, some southern Taiwanese languages, and many more that are included in the Austronesian group of languages. The language has about 18 million native speakers. Tagalog can also refer to the Tagalog people.
I know very little of Tagalog, since both my parents are Visayan, but I will try to give some examples.
bukas- uncooked rice
kita- we (you and I)
ako- I, me
langit- heaven, sky
dilim- dark (in terms of brigtness of light)
There's more I know, but I think this is enough
