[en] This article examines the politics of language use of minority groups such as Philippines-born migrants in Australia. In the context of multicultural Australia which celebrates 'difference' but also insists on the dominance of Anglo culture, bi-lingulism of migrant groups raises questions of usability and identity. The Philippines-born community appears to be safeguarded from the birthing difficulties that many ethnic groupings experience. This, however, comes at a price that questions the community's understanding of their identity.
