nalimot ko na ang sinabi ni rosa na ang espanyol daw ng pinoy eh sisikat na at magiging ok sa uk! okey ba?
kabite is the correct tagalog word for cavite which was hispanized from kawit or a corruption of kalawit, kaya nga sa ganang akin, ang origin ng korupsyon ng mga tagalog eh ang hispanized at americanized ng corruption, heheheh!
kawit is “hook” which refers to the small hook-shaped peninsula jutting in to manila bay, that was originally applied only to the peninsula called as cavite la punta, now cavite city, and the adjacent lowland coastal area of cavite viejo, now kawit.
cavite city used to serve as the capital of the province until 1954, and as with many other provinces organized during the spanish colonial era, the name of the capital was applied to the whole province.
cavite could also be a hispanicized form of tagalog kabit, meaning “joined, connected or attached” referring to the peninsula’s topographical relation to the mainland.
ang zamboanga naman, ke del norte, del sur o sibugay pa, eh hispanized form naman ng sambuwangan o sinama, which literally means a place of mooring poles for the settlement of the port town at the southern tip of mindanao’s western peninsula.
other names for Zamboanga include hambangan for “place of flowers”, or sampaga. or sampaga, while some historical accounts give the name of the settlement as sambuwangan, with sambuang or mooring pole as the obvious root, not jambang or hambang.
kaya naman, sisikat na ang mga katsilang pinoy ng cavite at zamboanga dahil sa new study by the british council finds that french, arabic or even mandarin chinese is no longer the most important foreign language for the UK, but spanish.
rosa further said that the most important languages for the UK’s future based on economic, geopolitical, cultural and educational indicators, are as follow: Spanish, Arabic, French, Mandarin, Chinese, German, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Turkish and Japanese
in my own study (not rosetta’s), I say that tagalog, the language of the river dwellers, which is comparable or even better than the 10 above or even more, is forever number one if being on the top is based on pure beauty and simplicity, mabuhay ang mga tagalog sa buong mundo, mabuhay! heheheh!
Eh, bakit hindi panay tagalog ang gamit ko dito? kase, mga inglisero ang dabarkads ko at ingles lang yata ang intindido nila, lalo na iyong mga mestisong pinoy na pango na natutong maghasa ng inglis sa ibang bansa, eh mga mukang asyanong intsek namang gaya ko, hohoho!
The findings do not suggest that people in the UK are learning the wrong languages, but the UK needs to develop in a wider range of languages, and in far greater numbers in order to reap the economic and cultural benefits available to them.
At the moment, 75% of the UK adult population are unable to speak any of the above languages well enough to hold a conversation, while mandarin chinese is the most widely spoken language by first language speakers, with 848 million speakers, but, spanish, with 406 million speakers, is the number 1 language for the UK to learn.
spanish is the second most spoken native language in the world, with an official status in 21 countries, and is currently listed as number 5 in the top 10 languages of the UK’s most important export markets.
when looking at high-growth markets and their languages, spanish scores particularly high, with great opportunities in countries like Argentina, Chile and Mexico.
Apart from business benefits, spain was the most popular destination for people from the UK in 2012, with more than 11 million visitors, and we all know now that if you really want to dive into a new culture and connect with the locals, you need to know more than a friendly “Hola!”.
Pero ako, sa tagalog paren! mabuhay! basta ang alam ko, ginawang aginaldo ang magdalo sa kabite, at ginawang tiwang-wang ang diwa ng magdiwang ng mga timawa ng katagalugan.
