Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

wow indeed p1noypri1de(first ever post too :) ). I just started this thread two days ago and I'm glad to see lots of interaction here. I guess this thread turned like a filipino convo thread :sweat.

@okyatoks--
Hahahaha!!! Tama ka!!! GSHT (Gumugulong sa sahig habang tumatawa) You're definitely right! ROFL
GSHT!!! :rofl

@GK--nice to see you drop by. I'm sure you'll learn more Tagalog by visiting this thread. :amuse

@DD--of course, many knew you're Pinoy :amuse Cool that you're learning Spanish. Soon you'll be translating Rizal's "Mi Ultimo Adios."

Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

ALIBATA:

Alibata or baybayin is the Filipinos ancient style of writing...

From: Fato Profugus

Alibata is an ancient writing system that was used in what is now the Philippines.
Although it was all but exstinguished by Western colonization, variants of it are still used in parts of Mindoro and Palawan,
and it is also increasingly used by Filipino youth as a way to express their identity.

From: Omniglot.com

Alibata/Baybayin Alphabet


From: Eagles Corner

Here you can see your words, names in Alibata, just choose the "Baybayin Script with Spanish Modifications" mode:

Link here to see your names or words in Alibata

Have Fun!!!

if you want you can download the Alibata Pixel font directly to your PC.

and here's more info about alibata:

Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

Now okyatoks, I can't believe you even researched on Alibata! Here's a well-deserved ossu for all your effort *Give 1 Ossu!*

Saludo din ako kay
(I also salute) clarity142 for starting this thread in the first place, even if it i's currently more of a convo thread :sweatdrop
Hello dyan sa mga Pinoy sa MH!
:whoo(Hello to the Filipinos in MH!)

Since I'm such a Wiki wh0re Here's what Wikipedia has on the following:
The Filipino Language
Tagalog
Taglish - "Tagalog infused with English", as you can see above :amuse
Tagalog Grammar
Tagalog Loanwords
Languages of the Philippines - Tagalog is not the only language native to the Philippines, and they differ greatly!!

There are also articles on other aspects of Philippine language usage such as specific ones on the other indigenous Philippine tongues, Englog (more popular known to us as Konyo English), and Philippine English (how English is used by Filipinos). If you have doubts on Wikipedia, you can always look for these in a search engine.

BTW, did you know that there are editions of Wikipedia in Tagalog, Cebuano, Waray-Waray, Ilokano and Kapampangan?
:grin2

Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

Salamat! :hug At least you know something else other than Tagalog that is from the Philippines, even if it's a little bit. I don't understand the other languages we have because no one has taught me those nor have I tried learning them. Add the fact that my dad was from Bulacan (Tagalog na Tagalog!) and my mom grew up in Manila.

Really OT:
Yay, 100 posts! :party

Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

Hmm... convo threads in other languages is something we probably ought to look at ( just so you guys don't feel so tempted to turn these threads into convo threads which is perfectly understandable! )

Maybe you guys could just start a separate thread here in this forum where you could talk in your own native language without getting off-topic (teaching the language, etc.)? Something like the Tagalog Hang-Out Thread - I dunno though XD

Oh well, just a suggestion :amuse ( "aha, talaga, talaga..." )

Another thing Nah-Nah taught me was "ay nako kumain ka na ano ba yan" when I had gone for a day without something - XD I found that one amusing ^^

Anyway my pleasure to visit :amuse ( and congrats, Ayah, on the 100th post! *akap* )

Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

@ Gold Knight
Okay, I'll create a new thread just for that. And thank you! *Yakap pabalik(?)*
(Is there a better way to say "hugs back"?) :glomp

To the other Filipinos :

From now on, this thread will only be dedicated in teaching Filipino/Tagalog, providing additional information about them, and answering questions in translation. Anything else should be posted in the appropriate threads. For our convenience, I made a Pinoy Hang Out Thread just for us. Pwede tayo managalog dun! Okay ba? Good!

clarity, you take it from here.

*****

Since this is IN the Languages forum, here's the latest Filipino phrases GK used in English.

"aha, talaga, talaga..."
"Oh, really, really..." Not O RLY?

"ay nako kumain ka na ano ba yan"
"Sheesh you should eat now (what the-)"

Now that you mention it, I think that's better :smile-big I misplaced the "What the..." (OMG to her) to the end when it makes more sense if it were at the beginning :darn

Re: Filipino/Tagalog Language

Yeah that dialect is awesome, unfortunately that dialect is getting extinct nowadays coz few people uses. :sweat There are other dialects in the Philippines that are Indonesian-like, Malaysian-like, or even Japanese-like (niponggo? i guess, i'm not so sure about it)
