Unfortunately, a typhoon devastated our classroom and everything was destroyed by flash floods and landslides. :))

Classes are suspended indefinitely.

 

It's gone for some reason. :/ We honestly have no idea why.

If somebody is willing to commit his/her time then why not??

I doubt that.

*idk why I multiquoted this... oopss, jk, now I know... +1rep :))

 

Yay! :P btw does filipino have a script or is it written in like english? o.O

 

It used to but the Philippines was colonized by Spain for almost four centuries. And so, the original script was neglected and forgotten.

 

great. that it'll make it easier to write.

 

\o/

 

lol I'm interested. But one thing, do sentence structures have to be changed in this language on the basis of masculine/feminine? :T besides the nouns and pronouns lol

 

Nope... sentence structures are nearly the same with English... tbh, nobody uses the language as it is anymore. most speak in Taglish (tagalog and english), some speak colloquially and words have evolved through the years a.k.a. the gay lingo...

 

*there are no specific pronouns for a specific gender

Kamusta or Kumusta is actually "How are you?" but it is used as a form of greeting.And as for Hi or Hello,as far as I know,there is no actual word for that.

Paalam for good-bye.

I will post the other translations and some useful phrases tomorrow. Have a good day!

Lesson 1: The Filipino Alphabet

Alpabetong Pilipino

filipino.gif

The Philippine Alphabet has 28 letters.If you notice it is similar to the English Alphabet aside form the letters Ññ and Ngng.

Ññ is adopted from the Spanish alphabet while the Ngng came from the original or the Pre-Hispanic Filipino Alphabet.

The Vowels:

Compared to English Vowels,the Filipino Vowels consist of only one sound.

Pronounce-------as in English--------Example

a-------------------------father------------- Magandang umaga,good morning

e-------------------------egg-----------------Nene

i-------------------------each---------------ibig,want

o-------------------------long---------------totoo, true

u-------------------------food-------------- kukunin, will take

Note:The languages of the pre-Hispanic Filipinos only had three vowels: "a," "e/i" and "o/u." Even today you may hear many Filipinos interchange "e" and "i," and "o" and 'u."

The Consonants:

Pronounce consonants as in English with the following considerations:

1. "g" is always hard, as in "get," never as in "gel."

2. "c, f, q, v, x" exist only in words adopted from other languages.

3. Pronounce adopted words as in their home language.

4. All other consonants are pronounced as in English.

5. In addition, there is the "ng" consonant; in the Filipino alphabet, it comes after "ñ"

6.More on the Pronunciation of "ng" shortly

Note:The languages of the pre-Hispanic Filipinos did not have the consonants "c," "f," "j," "q," "v," "x" and "z." Even today you may hear many Filipinos pronounce "v" as "b" and "f" as "p."

The Consonant "Ng"

To produce the "nga" sound, do the following.

a. Say "hanger"

b. Say "hang a."

c. Say "ang a."

d. Say "ng a."

e. Say "nga."

Practice "nga" with the following words:

· ang

· mga (short for "manga," the plural marker for nouns and pronouns)

· nang

· ng (pronounced like "nang," but is a different word)

· mangarap, to dream

· sanga, branch

· ngayón, now

· kailangan, need


So? That ends our Lesson for today. If you have any questions or concerns ask me.

Lesson 2 Preview: Useful Phrases

No homework for today! Hurray!


What's inside the spoilerbox???

In the next lessons you might encounter some familiar words.Why? In the early 16th century, the Philippines was colonized by the Spaniards for 333 years but during the Spanish-American War,the United States took over the Philippines for 48 years. Also during the World War II,Japanese people came to the Philippines. Therefore,the Filipino Language borrowed lots of Spanish words and English words and some words from Malaysian,Thai and Chinese as well.
