Today, I was inspired by my little exchange of comments with the adventurous Capt. Jill on speaking other languages. I also remembered I taught the poetic willowdot21 two most used Filipino phrases. I might as well write some translations of commonly used phrases in English, Filipino (Tagalog), Davao-Bisaya (Filipino dialect), ilonggo (Filipino dialect); two languages and two dialects I speak. 🙂
English Filipino (Tagalog) Davao-Bisaya Ilonggo
Good Morning – Magandang Umaga – Maayong Buntag – Maayo nga Aga
Good Evening – Magandang Gabi – Maayong Gabi-i – Maayo nga gab-i
I love you – Mahal Kita – Nahigugma ako kanimo – Naluyag ako sa imo
Thank You – Salamat – Salamat – Salamat
How are you? – Kumusta ka? – Kumusta ka? – Kamusta ka?
I’m Fine – Mabuti po – Maayo man – Mayad man
What’s your name?- Ano ang pangalan mo? – Unsa imong pangalan? – Ano ngalan mo?
This list could go far. If you want to have some words translated, comment me and I would be very glad to help. 🙂
