A Survey on Language Use, Attitudes, and Identity in Relation to Philippine English among Young Generation Filipinos: An Initial Sample from a Private University

Online Submission, Philippine ESL Journal v3 p74-107 Aug 2009
This study looks at the language use, attitudes, and identity in relation to Philippine English among young generation Filipinos through a questionnaire survey of a selected group of students from a Philippine private university. The survey findings would reveal that most domains of use and verbal activities are dominated by English as the language of current usage, and even more domains and activities are dominated by English as the language of preferred usage. It is safe to say that English indeed continues to penetrate the Filipino society, as evidence by the dominance of its use in various domains and activities and even more intimate contexts such as the home, prayers, and expressions of intimate emotions. And though the respondents of this survey still prefer Tagalog/Filipino to be the national language of the Philippines, they nonetheless have signified that (Philippine) English could be a symbol of their being a Filipino.
