Filipino is the Hispanized or Anglicized way of referring to both the people and the language in the Philippines. Note that it is also correct to say Filipino for a male and Filipina for a female.
Never use or say Philippino, because that doesn't sound right. On the other hand, Pilipinois how the locals from the Philippines refer to themselves, or to their national language. When applied to the language, Pilipino is synonymous with Tagalog, the language widely spoken in Manila, Bulacan, Bataan, and Batangas.
The "P" or "Ph" is used because most Filipino languages do not have the "F" sound with the exception of some native people in the Cordillera and Mindanao, like the Ifugao and the Teduray. The same goes for Pilipinaswhich is the name of the country itself. Pinoy is the shortened, colloquial version for Filipino to mean the people, but never the language.
It becomes Pinay when referring to a female, although Pinoy is also used to refer to both male and female. Part of the reason is that the traditional Abakada is limited and sometimes sounds funny or becomes the butt of jokes, as in the way certain words are spelled.
For example, bote bottle and titik letters are spelled Abakada style as "ba-o-ta-e" and "ta-i-ta-i-ka," which even make children die laughing!
The accepted way is to spell these words as "bi-o-ti-ey" and "ti-i-ti-i-key" or something to that effect. Still confused?Looking 4 filipinas
