MIXING LANGUAGES – fun or chaos?

What will happen if we mix languages all together in the Philippines,  a place which has multiple dialects of its own?

Request to readers: Please advise me if I got the words incorrectly hahahaha

Hebrew:

Boker Tov – Good Morning

Layla – nite

Shalom – hi, hello

Mandarin:

Zio an – Good Morning

xie xie – thank you

xin- heart

Wo ai ni – I love you

Kapampangan:

Metung nasi – 1 rice

Danum – water

Nukarin ka munta – where are you going?

Babi – pork

Ilonggo:

Palangga – love endearment

Pangga – short for palangga

Kasingkasing – heart

Pamahaw – breakfast

Ilokano:

Wen – yes

Napintas – beautiful lady

Tagalog:

Inihaw – grilled

EXAMPLES:

Lambingan blues:

Sample # 1:

“Boker tov, Pangga…xie xie last layla…”

(Good morning love, thank you last nite)

Sample # 2:

“Boker tov Pangga, it was wonderful last layla…from the bottom of my kasingkasing… wo ai ni”

(Good morning Love, it was wonderful last nite, from the bottom of my heart, I love you!)

Day to day living:

Sample #1:

Customer : ” Zio an, I will order pamahaw, inihaw na babi and metung nasi only okay? xie xie!” (Good Morning, I will order breakfast, grilled pork  and one rice only okay? Thank you!)

Server: “Wen Manong!” (Yes sir!)

Sample #2:

“Shalom! You are napintas today!” (Hello, you are beautiful today!)

Sample # 3:

“Pangga, nukarin ka munta, careful, may danum dyan sa daan” (Love, where are you going? Careful, there is water in the pathway…)

Hmmmnnnn…….possible….. language and dialects can be mixed……

“The distinct human behavior dictated by cultures and the character of cultures in general should be studied well to prevent clashes and chaos…”

MAAYONG ADLAW SA TANAN, from my xin! (Good day to all!)

About chilledhoney

"INVICTUS" panulat na matalinhaga, panulat na tumatama… ang kaisipan at kahulugan ay napag-iisa…. mga kaisipang minsan ay matindi at maanghang pagkawika, ngunit minsan nama’y payak, humahaplos sa kamalayan, puso at isipan…. at sa aking maikling panahong paikot ikot dito sa harding aking tambayan… oras ay di ko namamalayan… sa mga puna at palagay, ako ay nasisiyahan…. napakasarap pakawalan ang malayang kaisipan….

  1. Please let me emphasize that though the flow is light and there is humor in it…this is the message I want to get through….

    “The distinct human behavior dictated by cultures and the character of cultures in general should be studied well to prevent clashes and chaos…”

  2. parang ang sarap isipin na sa Pinas may isa lamang wikang ginagamit, walang di-pagkakaunawaan, walang ibang diyalekto. napakasarap isipin, wari ko’y mas magiging mabilis ang PAG-UNLAD, pagka’t sa iisang wika pa lang makakamit mo na ang pagkakapantay-pantay.

    hmmmm, isang pala-palagay, haka-haka at naisin ni Cup.

    • Ang iyong nais ay nais ko rin…pag -unlad ay mabilis kung wika ay iisa at papahalagahan… tingnan na lang natin ang bansang Japan… noong una tayo ang nasa itaas ng listahan, ngayon isa na ang Pilipinas sa nasa hulihan… tsk tsk nakakalungkot…

      Ang China at Singapore, yan din ang armas… mahalin ang sariling wika at gamitin ito bilang isang bayan… nakita naman natin kung paano sila umunlad ng lubusan…

      Sana sa ating bansang tinubuan ay magkaganun din… tumakbo kaya tayo sa halalan? Hmmm🙂

    • salamat sa pagdaan worshipwarrior:)…

      (may tumatawag din sa akin ng ganyan… “prayer warrior” hihihi)

      sana ito ay nakapagpangiti din sa iyo, tulad ng nagawa nito sa amin🙂

      Pasyal pasyal lang sa aking hardin…

      Ihanda lamang ang sarili sa minsa’y panulat na panggulat….🙂

      • theworshipwarriorbride

        huwow! isa kang “prayer warrior”?! magiting ka pala ate?🙂 dadalaw ako nang madalas promise.😉

  4. @ worshipwarrior… dahil ikaw din pala ay isang guro… sana mapakinabangan mo itong akda ko….
