Language contact is an important external cause of language change. Aside from the particular variety of English that Filipinos speak known as Philippine English, there is the practice of these bilingual Filipinos to sometimes switch between a local language and English in certain situations. Situations and results of language contact are numerous and varied but can be classified into three broad categories: Language Creation, Language Shift and Language Maintenance. Language creation is considered the most “extreme” result in a contact situation, resulting in new languages, i.e. pidgins, creoles and mixed languages. The Superstratist approach takes the opposite point of view and sees the created language as a restructuring of the lexifier or superstrate language in the contact situation.
