Our local alphabet is composed of these letters... a, b, k, d, e, g, h, i, l, m, n, nga, o, p, r, s, t, u, w, y That made our language simple with the pronunciation because all we had to think of was the T or the P since we do not have the TH sound or the F or the V and any other letters that can make life harder for our mouth. However, there was a change in the alphabet lately and I am lost. They say that the 20 words are now 25 with the inclusion of the letters F, V and some others that escape my mind for now. The Filipinos are confused particularly those already out of school like me. It's really true that you can be left behind by the times.
