can the category be changed to Filipino instead of Tagalog? Because that would be the appropriate term for the Philippine National Language. Tagalog being just part of Filipino.
- I edited all songs under the Tagalog sub-category to Filipino category. However, I disagree on the removal of this sub-category, as have been stated it is part of the supra-language "Filipino". Additionally, all songs written prior to the 1973 Constitution are considered "Tagalog" if written in the "Tagalog/Pilipino" language ("Pilipino" is the name of the language from 1959 to 1972 to avoid confusion with the ethnic group also known by the same name 'Tagalog').
- In other words, if someone will submit lyrics for songs before 1973 and it's Tagalog, then these songs should be categorized as such. ^_^ --- Laibcoms (talk | Contribs) 15:32, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
- To add, we can actually call 'Tagalog' as 'Pilipino' but it will further confuse people who are already confused. 'Pilipino' was a renamed 'Tagalog Language'. 'Filipino' on the other hand was born from scratch after the 1973 Constitution was approved and is not a renamed 'Pilipino' or 'Tagalog'. Why 'Filipino' is mainly 'Tagalog'? That's a long story :p --- Laibcoms (talk | Contribs) 15:40, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
