Now you'll know why for ilonggos, visayans are funny.
When cebuanos say:
"langgam" they look up.
When ilonggos hear cebuanos say:
"langgam" they look down.
langgam in visayan is bird.
langgam in ilonggo is equal to the tagalog meaning, ant.
In bisaya they call ants:
in hiligaynon they call ants:
subay in bisaya is follow..like when you follow a certain path or roadway..you "subay sa dalan".
ilonggos are weird they eat "anay" and "bala"
cebuanos are weird they eat "sako" as in, kaon sa ko.
when cebuanos say "karon"
they mean "now".
when ilonggos say "karon"
they mean "later".
cebuanos say "bulong"
when they look for something or somebody.
ilonggos say "bulong"
when they want to treat a wound or their sick.
"bulong" in visayan is, seek or look.
"bulong" in hiligaynon is, medicine.
bakukang in Visayan is a kind of bug.
bakukang in hiligaynon is a scar that they sometimes call colloid.
pilas for cebuanos is rashes.
pilas for ilonggos is wound, either big or small,fatal or not.
when they buy something, visayans say
If the keeper is an ilonggo
most likely he will either point you to the nearest changing area or give you a change..
ilonggos translate that as similar to the tagalog translation of the word..
we cook and eat "bugas"
girls hate "bugas"
because "bugas" is rice grain in ilonggo
but it also refers to pimple in cebuano.
most of all, when they find out that they are talking to an ilonggo, cebuanos try to imitate hiligaynon but tend to over use the "haw", "ya" and "gid"
and when you hear them you can't really help but laugh coz they really sond so funny.
