The Cebuano language is the second most spoken language in the Philippines, that’s why Cebuanos are bitter — wait, no, we’re not! We Cebuanos think that our language is superior than Tagalog, right?
Why don’t we just compare the two?
Tagalog: To chase
Cebuano: Blanket/blunt depending on which syllable is stressed
Cebuano: To squeeze
Cebuano: To hold one’s breath
Cebuano: Drum – ‘used for ice bucket challenge’
Tagalog: To let go!
Cebuano: Indeed! – “Gwapo si Coco Martin no? – Bitaw!”
Tagalog: To hang, be left hanging as in “bitin pa ako sa chicken joy!”
Tagalog: It appears to be, seemingly – “Tila uulan ngayon.”
Cebuano: To lick
Tagalog: Horny, sensual urge (please if you’re a Bisaya in Manila refrain from saying “Naglibog na ko!”)
