For 333 years, Spain heavily influenced the Philippines in many aspects of life as a colonizer of the country. This includes the widely used Spanish loaned numerals such as uno, dos, tres, and so on. Spanish numerals were adapted to the Filipino language by using their number names with the application of the way Filipinos make sounds of letters and spell words (see Filipino Language Pronunciation section).
