This chapter describes the phonology of Philippine English from a sociolectal perspective. It presents results from a fieldwork study aimed at determining the distinctive phonological features of the Philippine English variety used by three groups of speakers: an acrolectal, a mesolectal, and a basilectal group. It describes both the segmental and the suprasegmental features of the variety spoken by each group and suggests that further investigation of suprasegmental features of speech should be conducted to include morphophonemic changes that appear as a result of rapid speech.

Keywords:   phonology, Philippine English, basilectal group, suprasegmental features, speech, morphophonemic changes
