Abstract: Over 150 languages are spoken by the more than 76,500,000 Filipinos who live in an archipelago of around 7,000 islands that stretches over 1,500 kilometers from north to south, and about 800 kilometers from the most western point of Palawan to the most easterly point of Mindanao. Most of the languages are dialectally diverse, with a number constituting extensive dialect chains.
