- This paper discusses and maps out an instantiation of everyday multilingualism online. It argues that translingual dispositions – ways of speaking, thinking and doing which embrace, rather than reject, all forms of linguistic difference – are an important component in the struggle for the survival and maintenance of languages in the Philippines. Such dispositions, for example, are harnessed online through the promotion of ‘multilingual P-Pop’ (Pilipino Pop). The pandemic has made it doubly difficult to engage with issues of multilingualism, especially because one battleground for such issues are now online. However, it is not (yet) a lost battle. Willingness to communicate with the intention to understand and listen to others allows one to negotiate meaning through various strategies of online intercultural communication.
