  • Vincent Christopher A. Santiago


The Archive: A Journal Dedicated to the Study of Philippine Languages and Dialects is the official publication of the Department of Linguistics, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, University of the Philippines Diliman. Under this current title, it was conceptualized as the main platform for research generated by the Diliman Linguistics Circle (Reid, 1981)—later known as the Philippine Linguistics Circle—spearheaded by three prominent Filipino linguists: the late professors Ernesto A. Constantino (1930–2016), Ernesto H. Cubar (1929–2021), and Consuelo J. Paz (1933–2022). These three scholars also served as members of the editorial committee of the journal through the 1970s up to the 1990s. What follows are some milestones in the history and development of the journal.
