Wazzup Filipinas? : Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino Urges the Use of Filipinas Instead of Pilipinas

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Or should I say Wazzup Filipinas!

Please spread this let more and more Filipino know about this fresh breaking news from the "Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino"

To unite Filipinos through a better sense of history, the country's language commission has decided to stop using the name “Pilipinas” to refer to the country, and to use the name “Filipinas” instead.

“Ipinapasya, gaya ng ginagawang pagpapasiya ngayon, na ibalik ang gamit ng 'Filipinas' habang pinipigil ang paggamit ng 'Pilipinas' upang mapalaganap ang opisyal at modernisadong katawagan ng bansa na kumikilala sa kasaysayan at pag-unlad ng pagkabansa nito,” the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (KWF) said in a resolution dated April 12, which is going viral this weekend.

(We resolved, as we hereby resolve, to revive the use of “Filipinas” while stopping the use of “Pilipinas” to promote the official and modern name of the country, which recognizes its history and national development.)

National Artist for Literature Virgilio Almario, who chairs the KWF, has pushed for the use of “Filipinas” for over two decades. Almario believes "Filipinas" should even be the country's international name.

In its resolution, the KWF then proposed the following initial moves:

To gradually introduce “Filipinas” in seals, letterheads, notepads, and other materials; and

To urge institutions and companies with the name “Pilipinas” to spell it as “Filipinas”

The commission, however, clarified this is not mandatory, especially for institutions established when the letter “F” was not acknowledged in the Filipino alphabet.

So does this mean I need to change my blog title to Wazzup Filipinas? hehehe

Well, for me that would be quite a difficult task as history and years of usage has already made it clearly known to many that our country's Tagalog name is Pilipinas. There would now be a lot of corrections in many books and write-ups using the name Pilipinas, and like me, I would need to register for a new domain name....Ugghhh....

Just when my blog is developing right now as a community blog for all who wishes to express themselves online, I really do not wish to be back to reintroduce my blog as Wazzup Filipinas!

It doesn't really matter how you spell it, if your country rocks the world with its magnificence, then who cares about change from "P" to "F"?
