i agree. the filipino language sounds so much better when not peppered with english/filipinized english. i hate it when i listen to the young ones talking in taglish and making it sound like they're aristocrats or from upscale/prestigious universities or schools. unfortunately, even the journalists, who are supposed to be trained in formal media language, are mixing a lot of unnecessary english when there are filipino counterparts to those words. so now the young ones are exposed to just haphazard speaking.

when i was growing up, most tv shows were in english, except of course for the filipino soaps. the news were in straight english, tv hosts spoke in either straight filipino or straight english (the latter more often), print media were in straight english.

I agree with you, atleast there are still people like us who hate Taglish. It sounds horrible and is murdering our language. I do not understand why they need to use an English word when there is also a Filipino equivalent of the word . Yes there might be English words that do not have any Filipino equivalent but most of the time, even if there is just a Filipino equivalent word, people especially on tv, commercials still do not bother to use the Filipino word and would still use an English word.
It is like some Filipinos especially the younger ones, think it is not cool to speak Straight Filipino or that it's old school that's why they speak Taglish.

What is Filipinized English ?

in my generation, we studied english from preschool to college. of course at preschool, it wasnt the actual study of english yet, but more of learning to read books written in english and being taught to greet each other in english. math and science were taught in english in preschool.

unfortunately in my opinion, ever since former pres. estrada enforced filipino as medium of instruction in schools (after i finished college), the philippines lost its edge with communicating in english a bit. i've been away from the philippines for some time now, so i dont know if it's still the policy there. however, even with that, the philippine business english still tops the world apparently, even topping US.

it's my own way of describing english words being used the filipino way. let me try to come up with some examples:

drugs = droga in filipino
cellphone = selpon
television = telebisyon
school = eskwelahan (why not paaralan?)


that one filipinized english word from Encantadia would've best exemplified it since i know there was a formal filipino counterpart to it, but that word still escapes me at the moment

droga, telebisyon, and eskwelahan are all Filipinized Spanish. Droga is straight Spanish. And Filipinized Spanish IMO sounds much better than Filipinized English
