Recent diachronic change in the progressive in Philippine English
This chapter reports a diachronic study of the progressive aspect in Philippine English based on the Philippine component of the International Corpus of English and the new ‘Phil-Brown’ corpus which provides insights into evolutionary changes in Philippine English between the 1960s and the 1990s. Some findings suggest a perpetuation of the traditional exonormative influence on Philippine English of its colonial ‘parent’, American English, such as its distaste for progressive passives and the relative popularity of progressives with stative lexical verbs. Other results are suggestive of endonormative stabilisation, including an imperviousness to the forces of colloquialisation as reflected in the weaker endorsement in Philippine English of present progressives and contracted progressives than that in American (and British) English. Keywords: progressive; Philippine English; diachronic change; corpus
