Is it Filipino or Pilipino? Is it Pilipinas or The Philippines? Such questions have inspired as many answers as there are islands in our archipelago. For Filipinos, the quest for a unifying language mirrors the adventure of a nation in search of itself. Welcome to Alpabetong Filipino!
A gorgeously illustrated book of cultural icons, Alpabetong Filipino teaches the letters of the Filipino alphabet by attaching them to objects which are etched in the Filipino heart and mind—from the country’s past and present, from the northern to the southern provinces, from the ethnic to the regional to the national cultures.
This book includes a timeline of the Evolution of the Filipino Alphabet on page 38.
