Hello, this is my first forum post. I'm fairly new but I hope I'm posting on the right forum.
I just want to ask why we have Tagalog (Dialects) and Filipino/Tagalog? First, Tagalog is a language and is not a dialect. I do know that a language can have dialects. But the lyrics posted here (under the Tagalog(Dialects)) doesn't necessarily use any dialect of Tagalog.
The Filipino/Tagalog is better since Filipino is based on Tagalog, meaning every Tagalog word exist in Filipino but not the other way around. You can view Filipino as Tagalog plus loan words from both foreign & our local languages.
What I'm asking is can we possibly remove Tagalog(Dialects) and then change all lyrics belonging to that group to Filipino/Tagalog?
Thank you for your time. Regular smile

I think that it's just in case that a song in a certain dialect of Tagalog is posted, so it can be put under an actual category instead of being shoved in the "unknown" category.

Filipino/Tagalog is there though to be chosen. If you check the lyrics as well, those posted under Tagalog (Dialects) are actually in Filipino.
When it comes to songs written in the Philippines, they are written in Filipino/Tagalog and not in any dialect of the Tagalog language.
I personally haven't encountered such song written in a Tagalog dialect.

I've checked further and we even have Translation requests for Tagalog (Dialects) Filipino/Tagalog which are easy to do since they will be the same. But I don't think we'll need those lyrics as they will just be duplicates of the already posted lyrics.
