This chapter investigates the grammatical features of Philippine English. It validates the features already identified in previous studies by using a concordancing program on the one-million word Philippine corpus, the Philippine component of the International Corpus of English (ICE-PHI). It aims to identify which grammatical features occur in ICE-PHI, and to investigate their frequency of occurrence.
