The dictionary's audio library currently includes over 40,000+ native-speaker recordings.
Comprehensive Tagalog Verb Info:
No other online Tagalog dictionary specifies such detailed Tagalog verb information, including
the verb focus, conjugation type, and root. This, along with the thousands of verb example
sentences, makes learning Filipino verbs a whole lot easier.
Enhanced Search for Tagalog:
This dictionary's search algorithm was hand built specifically for the Tagalog language.
These algorithms are not available in any other Tagalog Dictionaries you find online, and they
are a huge improvement in how well dictionary searches work for Tagalog:
Ligature / NG: Searches automatically take into account that the ligature "ng" may or may not be included in the word you're searching for, and return results for relevant words both with and without the ligature, automatically. This makes searching for a word much easier when you are not sure if the ending is a ligature or not.
Root Structure: Word roots are hard-coded into every dictionary entry to better display helpful, related words to your search query. If an exact match to your search is not available, you will see related words with the same root to help you understand the meaning of the word.
Affixes, Infixes, Prefixes, Suffixes: This dictionary understands how Tagalog affixes work and takes them into account while doing searches. The search results not only show the word you've searched for, but also search for all permutations with each affix removed from your search term to reveal other related words. The dictionary will often run through thousands of potential affix permutations before giving you the best results it can find.
Spelling variations: Tagalog is often written using different spelling variations due to: regional differences, slang, text-speak, informal spellings, common misspellings, and abbreviations. This dictionary takes into account tens of thousands of these possible spelling variations in every search.
Built-In Lightning Fast Flash Card Builder:
No other online Tagalog dictionary is connected to a flash card system like this website has, which
makes creating custom flash cards incredibly quick and easy (with audio!). Just click the "paper clip"
icon next to any word in the dictionary to add it to a custom flash card set of your own creation.
Once you've created your flash card sets, study them through the flash card system on this website
or export to Anki. This helps you avoid a ton of tedious and redundant data entry.
Although the terms "Filipino" and "Tagalog" are often used interchangeably, according to the 1987
constitution  the official language of the country of the Philippines is Filipino (and not Tagalog).
is a language based on the Tagalog language with some (minor) changes. The government's official position on
the language has changed over the years: In 1937 the official language was named
to be the regional "Tagalog" language. In 1959 the language name was changed to "Pilipino,"
to differentiate it from the regionally-focused "Tagalog" language. And then in 1973 and again in 1987
the language name was officially and finally changed to "Filipino"
and included influences from other regional languages in the Philippines.
You can read
a more in depth History of the Filipino language on Wikipedia's article, here.
Generally, learners of the Filipino language will refer to it as "Tagalog." On this website
we use the terms interchangeably.
