Remark: Wenceslao Vinzons, a young representative from Camarines Norte in the 1935 Constitutional Convention,
officially proposed to include an article on developing a national language. Thus, the 1935 Constitution Article XIV, Section
3, states that the Congress “shall make necessary steps towards the development of a national language which will be
based on one of the existing native languages.”The following year, the National Assembly passed Commonwealth Act No.
184, establishing the Institute of National Language on November 13, 1936, that decided which among the existing native
languages will be the basis for the national language. Jaime C. de Veyra from Leyte was the first director. Eminent
linguists, representing different linguistic groups, were the other members of the institute. After studying the case, the
institute recommended Tagalog to be the basis of the national language. In 1937, Executive Order No. 134 was passed
stating that the national language will be based on Tagalog.
