This is certainly not every word in the Tagalog language nor will it ever be, but it is a dictionary in progress. My idea is to provide you with a sort of glossary you can use to build your vocabulary, and to group words by catagory and association.

If there is a word you need, and can't find it here please email me at justin@fluenttagalog.com and I will add it, as well as email you back with the answer as soon as I can free of charge, and together we can build a better working dictionary.
